Ava Thursday: Don't Be a Scaredy Cat
The third and last book that Ava drew for her classmates (see Love Is Embarrassing and Crafts) is "Don't Be a Scaredy Cat," a fun little book for her good friend, Evette. Evette and Ava have struck up a great friendship recently and have bonded pretty tight, playing together after school.
So, just in time for Halloween, here's Ava's little book about two girls who encounter a monster while walking....
"Once upon a time, there was a scaredy cat."
I absolutely love that monster and the screaming girl.
"The scaredy cat was so scared that she screamed."
More great faces here with the girl's tightly shut eyes, arms flailing, mouth screaming. And check out the monster swooping down to get her.
"Then the scaredy cat found another girl."
Uh oh. Looks like the monster is in trouble and he knows it.
"Then the girls turned over and they saw a monster."
Very nice composition here with the girls looking up at the now scared monster.
"But the girls weren't scared."
Ava tells me that the girls are crossing their arms with a "humph!" as they realize that monsters aren't scary. That's a priceless look on the deflated monster, isn't it?
"To Evette, from Ava. The end."
Have a Happy Halloween, all you scaredy cats!
