TITLE: Fat Chance's Magical Map
GENRE: Middle Grade fiction
Tony made a bet with the entire fifth grade class. If he didn’t nab Mr. Chance’s magical map by his eleventh birthday, he was going to scrub the kindergarten toilets every day for the rest of the school year.
Some kids said that was crazy. Zany. Cockamamie!
But Tony was a risk taker.
Nevertheless, he couldn’t ignore the Legend of Mr. Chance. This top-secret notebook lay hidden on the back shelf of the Watson Elementary School library. The Legend of Mr. Chance filled every page. Except the last one. Tony planned on writing the ending himself.
He stood in the library, skipping his dreaded math class, and quietly re-read the infamous legend:
The Legend of Mr. Chance
Mr. Chance had only one purpose in life-to make miserable little kids even more miserable.
Kids who laughed at his shiny bald head and big bulging belly.
Kids who hid his glass eye under his wig collection.
Kids who barged into his magic shop and messed up the fake vomit display.
In short, kids who farted and burped and sneezed and coughed and did all sorts of gross things. Kids who wanted a little more freedom from their parents and a little more sugar in their lunchboxes.
