JUPITER, Fla. (AP) --

A fairy tale dreamed up by a 6-year-old Florida girl before she was killed in a horrific shooting rampage at her home has come to life in a new children's book.

"The Bear's Castle" realizes Makayla Joy Sitton's goal to
publish a book, and it uses the very words she dictated during a
homeschooling lesson with her mother.

Sitton was killed with three others on Thanksgiving Day 2009
when a relative went on a shooting spree at her Jupiter, Fla.,

Her book tells the story of a little bear who wants to make all
his wishes come true, and who lives happily ever after with a
unicorn in a castle. Her parents hope it will bring Makayla's joy
to other children.
