i haven't got any traditional stories but i read other types of books too and i'd like to recommend u Diary of a Wimpy Kid and Dork Diaries. U many get the extracts of Dork Diaries on their website.

I read many stories from around the world. yes, I got one story to send. It's The Ugly Duckling,
It was summer, the air was scented with newly moun hay. There stood a castle surrounded by
a mout amoung the tall trees. Thick weeds grow at the foot of castle walls. A mother duck
had built nest and was sitting on her eggs in this quiet spot. She sat for the pretty longer time
hoping something to happen. Eventually, the eggs hatched, one by one.

Best wishes,
