Once upon another planet, there lived an alien named Mittens. She had two eyes and long hair as white as snow. She was the most beautiful alien on the planet Freezer.
This planet was the farthest from the sun and was very cold. It was so cold on the planet Freezer, that if a human would come to visit, they would freeze into an ice cube. Mittens had to wear her mittens and scarf because it was very cold and windy.
One day, the wind was so hard, that it blew off her mittens and her scarf. She couldn’t find her mittens and scarf so she got a new pair of mittens and a new bright, shiny red scarf. It was the shiniest scarf in the solar system!
She lived with her mom, dad, and 600 brothers. They lived in an ice house made just like an igloo.
If Mittens was to visit Earth, she would only be able to stay in the North Pole because that is the only place cold enough for her to live.
She had lots of friends named Frigid, Chills, Chilly, Refrigerator, and the Ice Cube twins. They liked to play ball, jump rope, hula hoop, and board games. Frigid always won Monopoly when they played and Mittens always won Guess Who?.
She attended another planet, the planet York, for school and her elementary school was named York Brook School. They learned a lot about nature and animals and the solar system. Her favorite specials were music, gym, library, and art. She loved them all! She never left the planet and lived there for all her life.
Even though she never visited Earth, Mittens and I are a lot alike. We like the same things and play the same games. If she would have come to Earth, we would have been great friends!
