The story this week was written by Alice Ma, from Hamilton, Ontario. Alice is an English as a Second Language (ESL) Student in the Hamilton Board of Education class.
There was once a stupid person in a Chinese town. Once when he was very hungry, then he went to buy a pie and he ate one and then another one. When he had eaten five pies, he didn't feel full, so he ate one more pie. After he finished eating, he felt very full. He said to everybody, "if I had known the sixth pie was so filling, I wouldn't have eaten the first five."
