My son is in first grade, so although I used too many sight words, I did my best to use small, phonetic words or those that have been on his spelling lists (most common sight words).
Here's BatP and HoL summed up as an easy reader, originally written by Dan and Deborah Joy Levine. I did take some poetic license with it - it's a whole lot easier to say "wed" than to find a phonetic phrasing for "is there any hope for us".
It's over 300 words. Sorry I didn't meet the length criteria. I got lazy - it's two episodes, after all.

I know my grammer stinks. Among other problems, I switched between present and past tense a few times, but didn't see a way around it without bringing more complicated words into it.
This was an interesting exercise. I may try another in a while.
