The Story that did not want to be Read

Once upon the thing this book is on there was a story that did not want to be read.

Why not?

No one knew why. Some readers thought the story was grouchy. Others thought it was shy. Maybe the story was too busy to be read. Maybe it had secrets hidden in its pages. Should someone offer the story a chocolate ice cream cone? But what if it preferred vanilla fudge ripple? One reader even thought the story wanted a bowl of French vanilla ice cream, topped with an ornery onion and a rutabaga that looks like Winston Churchill.
