When Jar Jar Goes To Bed
By Nathan Jones, age 9
Jar Jar and his wife, Dear Dear tucked their kids in bed. "Good night," said Dear Dear. "Can I have a drink of water?" asked Bar Bar. "Not the kind the monster fish drink out of." Jar Jar sighed and gave them drinks of water. "Now you go to sleep," said Jar Jar as he closed the door. The door creaked, bushes rubbed on the window, and a skeleton pterodactyl came. "AAAAHHHH!" screamed the Gunguinlings. They ran upstairs and banged on the door. "Daddy, Mommy! Help us!" they screamed. Jar Jar opened the door and said, "Yousa go away!" The monster ran away.
Nathan brought me this story today and I knew it was something I had to share on my blog. I don't know where he gets it. I've always read to my kids and lately my boys have been listening to me reading my manuscripts. I guess some of that has rubbed off on Nathan. He's quite a character.
