another spelling story

Annie's homework assignment for today was to write a story using her spelling words for this week. She wrote as if writing the description on a book jacket. I wish I was a fraction as clever as she is!

This week's words:
lambent, blatherskite, wistfully, invertebrate, strategy, pediatrician, excitement, seethe, numerous, prominent, iridescent, cerulean, throughout, leisurely, extraordinary, humorous

This is the story of a rather humorous girl, a friendly pediatrician, and a cerulean invertebrate.

The girl, Ti, and her companion Patty, a prominent pediatrician, embark on a quest to free an important item from an evil blatherskite. The item, The Lambent Orb, an iridescent sphere, was once guarded by the Cerulean Star, an invertebrate. But she has been put to sleep. The duo comes up with a strategy to save the orb. Throughout the not-so-leisurely adventure, the seething blatherskite makes numerous attempts to murder Ti, but always fails. In the end, when the orb is retrieved, he wistfully dies of anger.
