Who is the story about? Buddy
Description Once upon a time a plane and train fell in love. Although they were two different transportation vehicles, they married and had a little boy. They named him Buddy. Growing up was hard for little Buddy. He wasn’t just a plane or a train, he was both! All the other little planes and trains made fun of him because he didn’t really fit in anywhere.
Who else is in the story? Tucker, and Tucker’s mom, other little planes and trains
Where are they? Buddy liked to hide in the woods just by the railroad tracks on the cliff.
What are they doing? He is hiding from the other kids, who were being especially mean today.
Why are they doing that? Buddy liked to escape where he could hear the trains and see the planes fly in the sky without being noticed. Some days he liked to imagine he was only a train, slowing chugging on the tracks. Some days he imagined he was only a plane soaring through the sky. And other days he would just watch, wondering what it was like to fit in.
What happens to everyone? On this particular day Buddy was staring up in the sky. With his mind in the clouds he did not notice the train coming on the tracks until he heard the brakes squeal and some of the passengers yell. Buddy looked up to see the train take the curve by the cliff far too fast. The engine started to tip over the cliff! Thinking fast, Buddy flew over to the train and as it started to fall from the cliff. He attached himself to the caboose and flew the train to the tracks. There were hollers of joy and one little passenger named Tucker cried “yay engiee choo coo plane! Buddy gave him a questioning look and Tucker’s mom explains “he can’t say engine yet, so he says engie.” Buddy thought to himself, “So that is what I am, Engiee Choo Choo Plane!” Soon, all the other little planes and trains heard how Buddy saved the day, and that if it weren’t for his wings and wheels, that other train would have been in big trouble. From this point on, no one ever made fun of Buddy the Engiee Choo Choo Plane.
