    Yes, they should be advertised to girls only because if they were also advertised for boys it would be like advertising Barbies to boys or Hot-wheels to girls. If a boy really wants it he can buy it, but I do not think they should advertise that it is for boys.

    I sometimes read in a tree during the summer! It is just hard to get in and out of the tree without dropping the book. I first started doing this because my mom told me two years ago that I had to go outside and not spend my whole summer sitting inside reading. She thought it was funny and did not complain when she found me in the tree!

    Mickey For President?
    Written by Anna Spagnolo (age 13) from Puyallup, WA
    𐩘𐩘
    “The presidential election should be very very interesting this year since it is one of the first years that few people like either of the candidates,” drones the radio. I reach over and shut it off. “No more election news please!” I say though no one can hear me.
    My name is Mick Mouse. I am a truck driver from Montana. Everyone has called me Mickey since I was little. I have been married to my wife Margaret for twenty years, and we have no children. Right now I am on my way home from delivering Coke in Idaho. I hope to get home before nightfall because the polls close tonight, and I still need to vote.
    The two candidates this year are Vivian Harris and Austin Bernard. Neither stand for anything good. All they have done during their election speeches is verbally fight and call each other names. These are not traits that I want the leader of our country to have, and I could be a better president than either of them will ever be. My only problem is I am too shy, and who would vote for a guy they do not even know anything about?
    𐩘𐩘
    I unlock the front door and step in. I am home at last! “Welcome home Mickey!” Margaret says. “You’re just in time for dinner! I made your favorite, steak and mashed potatoes. I also made dessert, peach pie, my favorite!” she says laughingly.
    We walk to the table, we pray for the election that is going to take place tonight, and then we dig into our food. After we finish eating, Margaret and I climb into my truck, and then drive to the polls which are about an hour away from home. Margaret and I have decided to vote for everything except president this year because we cannot bring ourselves to vote for either Harris or Bernard. We fill out our ballots and then climb back into the truck.
    When we get home, I sit down and turn on the TV as Margaret washes the the dirty dinner dishes. The polls are starting to close on the east coast. For Maine, the winner is Vivian Harris…
    𐩘𐩘
    I wake up when I hear the newscasters going crazy. On the bottom of the screen I read, “Mickey Mouse wins Pennsylvania.”
    “What?” I yell. Margaret stands beside me staring with her mouth open at the screen as Mickey Mouse wins almost all of the rest of the states. By the time the counting gets to Nevada, Harris and Bernard are fuming with anger.
    “This must be a joke!” Harris exclaims. “A Disney mouse cannot win the presidency even if many people write that in when they do not know who to vote for!”
    At that time, one of the newscasters remembers, “Hey! When I was in college, I had a roommate named Mick Mouse. I could call him up and maybe he will give us his take on this.” In a few minutes, I am on the phone and the newscasters say that they are sending a jet right now to bring Margaret and I to D.C.
    A few minutes later a jet comes and lands right in front of my house. Margaret and I climb in and we are flown at top speed to Washington D.C. I have never in my whole life flown in such a nice plane, they even offered us food and drink along the way.
    When we get there, the newsmen (and women) start asking me all these questions like, “What do you think about the war in Africa?” and “Should man step foot on Venus?” I am so surprised with all of the chaos that I am shockingly not even nervous.
    The people must really like my answers because the crowd starts chanting, “Mickey Mouse for president! Mick Mouse for president!” As for Harris and Bernard, they are for once in agreement. They are super mad that I am winning their election.
    𐩘𐩘
    It is two months later, and I am getting inaugurated into the presidency today. Harris and Bernard were so mad that they brought me to court, but they lost the case because the judge could not say that I had done anything wrong. At the Electoral College last month, I won by a landslide. During my term, I want to make America a better place, and, who knows, I might run for the next election.

    I think peaceful marches are effective way of making change because no one gets hurt, but the people still get their point across.

    Uh oh, looks like you might have more in common with Robin Talley's AS I DESCENDED than you might think. (This does not sound like a good book?)
