Scissors by Emma

Emma has long been jealous of Daddy’s writing folder‘s prominence on the blog. So, since she did such a stellar job on her variation of Rumpelstiltskin, I decided to post it here for you. And, yes, we did watch a lot of Dora when she was little 🙂 If you didn’t, catch yourself an episode on YouTube and this will make a lot more sense.

Once upon a time Dora was stuck in King Boots’ castle because she had yelled, “I can turn straw into bananas!” The first night the Grumpy Old Troll Who Lives Under The Bridge came. Dora said, “Spin straw into bananas for me, and I’ll give you my special bracelet.” “OK,” said the troll. The next night, the troll showed up again. “I’ll give you Map if you make bananas again,” Dora said. The troll said, “What do I need a map for?” Dora told him,”If there’s a place you’ve got to go, he’s the one you need to know.” So, the troll quickly did the task.

The final night, the troll came again. “What will you give me?” he asked. She had nothing. “If you can’t solve my riddle, you have to give me backpack,” said the Grumpy Old Troll, who loved riddles. Sadly, she agreed. “If you need to cut paper, you use something that rhymes with nissors”, he riddled. As he spun the bananas, Dora made a long list. The next day, the troll came to see Queen Dora (King Boots had married her because “she” had spun bananas.). Dora listed, “Rocks, Shoes, Fizzers, Rugby, flippers,” but none were right. The next day, Dora listed, “Math, soccer balls, jumping, rattles, swissors?” Again, she was incorrect.

On the final day, she was out on her walk, and she heard the Grumpy Troll sing,”I’m the Grumpy Old Troll Who Lives Under The Bridge, and I will get Backpack because the answer to my riddle is scissors!” So when he came, she listed,”Horses, bulls, sheep, razors, rizzors or is it scissors?!” The Grumpy Old Troll was mad. He smashed through the floor, and nobody ever saw him again.

The End.

Who would you like to see in Rumpelstiltskin?
