Pocket Books, 2004 - 64

Come one, come all, to Wrescal Lane.
It's the bestest place to see
your favorite WWE Superstars
as kids like you and me!

First there's young Mick Foley,
with missing teeth and dirty shirt.
One look at him will tell you
he's not afraid of getting hurt!

Kurt Angle thinks he's brave and strong;
he's really quite the boaster --
till he visits Mr. McMahon's new theme park
and sees the roller coaster!

Triple H calls himself The Game;
he's good at any task.
Kane's a real big, scary kid.
Why does he wear that mask?

Check out Lita and Matt Hardy,
always leapin' before lookin'.
And The Rock keeps shouting for everyone
to smell what he is cookin'!

Say hi to Stacy Keibler;
she's cute and easy to like.
But what's up with Al Snow
and that doll's head on his bike?

Look, there's Stephanie McMahon,
selling some of Dad's old things.
Uh-oh, those mean ol' Dudley Boys
gave Shane a bruise that stings!

These kids still have a lot to learn
about playing nice and sharing.
Perhaps we can learn with them
to become a bit more caring!

Now get ready for lots of fun,
come shine or come rain,
as you read over and over
these Tales from Wrescal Lane!
