Hi Skye! I see that you have worked hard on this over our vacation. Nice job! You should go back through and make sure that you have complete sentences - I see some run-ons and fragments. Also, try to think of some ways to expand your paragraphs. For example, your food paragraph is pretty good, but you should try to add to the enemies paragraph if you can. I love hearing about the mustache! I wonder why they have one...
Keep up the good work!
