sunday scribblings - fearless

'
Little Johnny and his friend Maria were always together. They liked the same things. Mr Men books, glove puppets and jumping up and down! Johnny quite liked Maria's dolls, but he didn’t tell the other boys, and Maria loved playing with Johnny’s toy cars but she didn’t tell her sister.

One day they played dare! Johnny dared Maria to pick up a wriggly worm and she did! Maria dared Johnny to touch some slimy frog spawn and he did.

Then along came Johnny’s brother Harry. He was not frightened of anything. He once crawled up the slide in the park, and climbed a tree to get an apple. And last Christmas he even ate a sprout! Yuc!

Harry started doing daring things. He let a caterpillar walk up his arm, and he spun round and round until he was giddy. He picked one of Daddy’s flowers, but that was really a bit naughty.

Then Maria ran up to him holding a big brown hairy spider behind her back. She told Harry to close his eyes and hold out his hand. She put it on his palm and asked him to open his eyes. Harry took one look, screamed and ran down the garden.

He was not so fearless after all!

  5. this was so much fun Keith! (I had forgotten about those little Mr.Men books!) My kids loved them. I was starting to think this was going to be a 'you show me Yours, I'll show you mine' kind of story! So happy it went the sweet route! ♥

  6. I have no problem with snakes or worms but I'd be WAY ahead of Johnny if you put a spider in my hand. {shudder}
