There was once a girl. Her name was Jane. She was very boastful. Her friends got tired of her always saying something or other. She boasted about her frocks, “You know my aunty gave me two new frocks. You should see them. They are wonderful…” And went on and on. One day, as she was going home from school, she saw a small man coming towards her. He said, “Hello, I am Sparky and I am a gnome. I have heard of you. Aren’t you boastful Jane? I have two brothers. They are the best boasters in fairy land. Their names are Pip and Joe. I bet even you couldn’t beat them in boasting”. He took Jane to his home. She was amazed by his two boasting brothers. She boasted to them about her clothes. Pip said, “I have 50 hats all different”. Jane said, “You are lying”. “Come here”, said Pip, “I will show you that I am not lying” and showed her 50 hats all different in a large cupboard. Then Joe said, “I have a pair of shoes made of gold” and showed Jane the gold boots. Jane stood mouth open in surprise. Then she saw a chocolate bun on the shelf. She was so hungry that without asking, she ate the whole bun. Pip and Joe screamed. Pip said, “You ate the stop-boasting bun!” Jane got very angry and went home. The next day in school, she boasted, “I have been to a mountain that nobody has ever gone to before”. Her nose started getting really long. She at once stopped boasting. When she stopped boasting, her nose got to the same size again. From that day forward, she stopped boasting.

Sarah Guys this was years ago so don't judge me by it. Also, I know people may not like it when someone else cheats and takes credit for a story they have not written but before commenting you should keep in mind that because of you some poor kid could easily get discouraged and stop trying to write. It's easy to blame and hate on someone but if it happens to you especially at such a tender age you might not like it as much as you like framing someone for cheating a story. Sarah

Berha Now ppl who r saing her cheater boastful, especially Ajwa. And I quote (These are the exact words of Ajwa) "i know cuzz ive read almost 32 ov them sooo" Quote end. As you can see so much boasting oh and I'm not taking sides as I quote (This is Sarah's) "You have no right to comment so rudely on a third grader's innocent attempt to write." Quote end. I dont think this was innocence... I am taking nobody's side. But really! Cant a person share a good moral story!!!??? Y r u even fighting she even said that she took ideas!!!! Okay enough of that, I will copy/paste another comment written by Aleeza Zafar to Aisha on Feb 27th 2011 on the story Mother & son. "Dear Aisha.. JazakAllah for your comment...But let me tell you something too..First of all..There are some moral stories from which each of us can get a Real Lesson.SO why not share them instead of keeping them inside of us..why not let other people to learn something in my point of view..i dont call it copying i call it sharing..In Vshine you can share your thoghts,stories and many more.. Okay!! u have heard this many times but maybe for some of us it is new.So..and maybe it can taught someone a good lesson. Dear Aisha i know i may be wrong too..but i want to clear that i do not want people to appreciate me or im show-offing.InshAllah next time for such type of stories i will write the name of Author too. I hope i have cleared my self.But if still there is some confusion you are most welcome:) And for your advise,i really like and i want to tell you that i am a permanent writer for children magazines..and i have wrote dozens of stories by myself,but the there level is kind of high for below 10 years children so i dont share them Well thanks" Hope this will help anything else I have lots evidence in fact dont believe me??? Here's the link Hope this helped. It is very long but it's useful read it understand it then follow it Berha

Sarah Reply to Wajeeha and Ajwa: I did not copy it and I did not cheat. I took ideas from here and there and also added things on my own. What else do you expect from an 8 year old??? Give complete reference of the story that you think I have cheated from including book name, writer name and story name. You have no right to comment so rudely on a third grader's innocent attempt to write. Sarah
