  1. Is this a good idea for a story?So a boy feels left out of his family so he goes to live in the jungle with the ape that saved him from a mad dog attack when he was a baby. And then his family realizes that he was gone so they go looking for him and realize they made him leave by making him feel uncomterble.Then the mother says we have drive away our only son our only child.

    • I think this could be good … it has a major problem to solve which adds conflict (and makes for an exciting story!) Also, there’s lots of room for character development – the parents, and probably the boy, too – will have learned something at the end. Good idea, Alexandra!

  2. I am not sure if this would work out.But Mrs.Pregent the boy in my class whose doing the comic can not get the permission form signed so can we put the comic on the school newspaper but not put it online plz answer.
