Print out this page and fill in the questions

Make this picture into a character by answering these questions. Be creative. Don't put down the first thought that comes to you. Try to come up with ideas that nobody else would think of!
What does it like to do on Saturdays?

What is the secret it doesn't want anyone to know?

What does it do well?

What does it not do well?

What is its favorite memory?
What emotion is it showing and why?
Who is its best friend?
What does it want most in the whole world?

Now write a story about how it might get the thing it most wants, who might try to stop it, and how it might use alien powers in its adventure!
