Short Story for Kids written by: Maria Alejandra Maya M. (9 years old).

Once upon a time…

There was a friendly monster called Merlin, who didn´t like being bad, but everybody was afraid of him.

There were also dragons and, as they were bad, people thought that Merlin was bad too.


Merlin decided to go out for a walk with his friend Lisa. They met a group of girls who, when they saw Merlin, were really scared.



One of them was the King´s daughter who then told her father what she had seen. the King sent his best hunters in kingdom to search for the monster.

They looked for him everywhere as they did not want him to scare the town’s inhabitants again.

Merlin saw them and ran away. He was afraid for himself and for his friend Lisa as he did not want her to be hurt.

They were running away from the hunters when Lisa fell into a trap the hunters had set and was injured.

Merlin pulled her out of the trap and saved her and they went to live in another place. There, they demonstrated to everybody that they were not bad and that sometimes appearances are decieving. From then on, they could go out for walks and nobody was scared of them or tried to hurt them.
