The Stationery

By: Anaika Chakraborty (Grade 1)


Once upon a time there lived a little girl named Olivia. Olivia had three sisters, Reyana,

Stephanie, and Indiana. Olivia was 14, Stephanie was 12, Reyana was 9 and Indiana was

7. They lived in a city named Heartville in the northeast of United States of America.

Reyana and Stephanie were greedy sisters, but Olivia and Indiana were grateful children.

They all loved stationery. Their mother and father were named Andrea and Michael.

Andrea was a baker and Michael was a shoemaker. They told Reyana and Stephanie that

they should be grateful for what they have too. But Stepanie and Reyana still were greedy.

One night when Olivia was going to bed she saw out of her covers, her stationery was

wriggling out the window! Olivia snatched the stationery. She begged her stationery not to

leave but by then her mom came and Olivia had to sleep. She hugged her stationery and

slept. The next day, Olivia woke up late. When she looked in her hands, there was no

stationery. All there was, was a note from Indiana and some candies. The note said,


“Dear Olivi

I’m sorry that Stephainie and Reyana stole your stationery. I gave you these candies so

that you cheer up. How I knew they stole it, I wore black pjs so that I could sneak up on

Stephanie and Reyana.





When Olivia saw the letter, she was happy with what her sister had said to her but she was

still sad. Stephanie and Reyana saw that their sister was sad so they decided to change their

greediness into gratefulness. They went and told Olivia that they were sorry for stealing

her stationery and returned it to her. Olivia smiled and said “We can all go and play, ride a

bike ride, run and all sorts of stuff. Would you like to do that?”. Stephenie and Reyana

happily agreed. All four sisters played together and had a great day.

Olivia then told her sisters about her stationery. They all decided to wait and watch the

stationery come alive. Then in the night Olivia’s stationery came alive once again!!. This

time she and her sisters all saw. They caught the stationery, calmed them and introduced

themselves. Then the stationery and the sisters became friends. They played together and

had a big party.
