Preschool Storytelling

So Ian has been dictating a story to me all day that I thought I would share with you. I keep asking him if he's almost done and he keeps saying no, so I'm putting a stop to it for the night, but I wanted to type up what we have so far. So I present to you:

The Kittycoppers, The Police, And The Superhero Called Megapoo

By Ian Reed

Once upon a time there was Mousecutter and Stingraysharp. His boss was named Kittynail. His nails could stretch to 140 pounds in a row. And then they had to fight a competition. So Kittynail sent his couplers to win the competition. And then he got the magic potion as a prize inside a magic box. 

And then he used a laser and made him into Antman. Then one time he made a robot and used it to capture a wild, big, shark fish to make into one of their couplers. And Kittynail said, "I need all the creatures I like, reptiles with sharp teeth, and send them to my lab."

They wanted to put the robot mask on the reptiles to make a shark. Then Kittynail sent another coupler, called Stingraysharp to cut the grass short to mix all the animals.

So Kittynail said, "We're going to travel in this huge, flying, mechanical box to see this famous alligator who swam around catching everything it could find. It even jumped on land and catched a grasshopper. I want to catch a grasshopper and make it into one of us. And I want to catch the famous alligator too, and mix it together- half grasshopper and half alligator." 

So they caught all the animals on sea and land to make a huge monster. It was going well but then they fell in the water so they started looking in the sea for animals. Then they went out.

Kittynail said, "Let's swim and find the golden reptile, made of gold, and it can go on land, even in dirt, and it can go 13,16,17 miles of hour." 

Stingraysharp said, "I'm going to cut all the plants we're going to eat." And then he turned into a stingray and then back into himself. He can cut with his fins and turn into anything in the sea. So he cut until he found a magic box, full of magic diamonds, and gold, and magic potions that would make him strong. Kittynail wanted some too and Mousecutter. Stingraysharp gave some of the potions and diamonds, but he made more potions and said, "Let's take all the water around the city."

Kittynail said, "Let's go so we can swim in the deep blue sea!" So he sent one of his couplers to find a magic gun from a sea man who was really a sea monster.

The gun was called Gapperairy, so the monster turned into a shark and left his cave to look for his gun. It shot out water with magic stuff in it. So the sea monster sent one of his goblin monsters to catch other monsters.

Kittynail said, "Let's use all our couplers we made to make an army to attack the sea monster."

And the sea monster said, "I will use my slave army to battle Kittynail and all his couplers to get all the stuff!"

And they said, "Charge!"

And they fought with guns, swords, and electric reptiles that are in the sea and stings, a sea snake! And it turned into a snake sword!

(To be continued...)

So that's all we have for now. I personally am eager to see how the battle turns out and I'm really curious how Megapoo will factor into all this.


  1. Oh my goodness. How old is Ian? I love it.

  2. That boy has some imagination! I think you have a little mad scientist on yer hands. lol

    1. Yeah he does! And I wouldn't be surprised if I did! My own little Megamind. <3

  3. Very cool! The idea of a grasshopper crossed with an alligator is actually pretty creepy. I'm sort of wondering what a "coupler" is in Ian's mind.

    1. I don't know...they seem to be Kittynail's henchmen. Both Stingraysharp and Mousecutter are "couplers" but Stingraysharp is a sort of man/sea creature shapeshifter and Mousecutter is a little mouse man type guy. lol

    2. Ooh... Wouldn't it be clever if they were "couplers" because they were each a human "coupled" with animal traits. By the way, the names of these characters are just great.

    3. Y' could be onto something. ALMOST every time he describes one of these guys he tells me that they're guys but also monsters and they can be like people but they can also turn into animal like creatures too. So that's definitely a possibility. I'm not completely confident in his grasp of English that he'd consciously make that connection...but it's possible. I've tried asking him why he calls them that and I can't really get an answer out of him. I'll have to type up his latest additions. Megapoo has finally made his appearance! lol
