Also titled: Theodore's Really Bad Day
Written and illustrated by Lillian
Here's the latest gem from my future novelist. She's got the brevity of Steinbeck, the perkiness of Hemingway and the plot lines of Stephen King. I smell National Book Award . . .
Theodore and Brooke lived in a little house by a small pond. One day they decided to go on a walk in the woods. They walked and they walked and they walked. They came to the small pond.Brooke didn't want Theodore to go into the pond but he did. When Theodore went into the pond there was quicksand on the bottom and it sucked him and sucked him down and down into the quicksand.
"Help!" he said.
He pulled out of the quicksand.
But there were leeches in the water and they wrapped themselves all around Theodore and pulled him back into the quicksand. The leeches wrapped themselves tighter and tighter around Theodore's eggs and larms. I mean Theodore's legs and arms [sic].
He crawled out of the water and got the leeches off of him. Brooke and Theodore went back to the house.
But later they decided to go to the pond again. When they got to the pond there was a small shark in the water. He wanted to play with them but Brooke told Theodore not to go back into the pond. Theodore said he wanted to play with the shark so he went back in the water.
The shark ate him up.The end.
