Here's a fun story!!
When I was in 2nd grade, my class read this story from "The Stories Julian Tells" about a couple of brothers who were waiting for their mom to get home to eat the lemon pudding that they made together with their daddy. Anyway, it was a riveting children's tale and I made my mom make me lemon pudding b/c of it.
Sounds boring. Unless the story ended with the kids finding out their mother died in a car wreck on the way home and her spirit infested their lemon pudding, causing it to come to life and get into all sorts of fun antics with them until the father accidentally eats the pudding in the middle of the night.
Nah it ends with a mellow, life lesson as opposed to a spanking.
