A very creative Little Elvis

Little Elvis wrote a story during the Hanging of the Greens service at our church last Sunday night.

It's not his first story, but it's the first where he's dictated with words and drew illustrations as he went along.

He's not focusing on plot yet, but we enjoyed the story. (It also kept him mostly quiet during the service. Baby Plum had to be taken to the nursery.)

We used 2 programs to write and illustrate the story. I left the title page out.

Super America: Illustrated by Little Elvis.

This is a moon that transforms. This is a flower that looks like a square. (Mommy drew the flower, and apparently didn't do a good job.)
This is a stop light. Red means stop. Yellow means slow. Green means go.

(On an interior page that isn't pictured.)

This is a window that blows all day.

These are tornadoes that hurt people. (Daddy's a meteorologist.)

(Another not pictured page. He told me, "Just write the words I say. These are just words.")

Woah! Save all things in the worlds. And beaks can do everything. This is an 'inator' that shoots bad guys.

The End.

In case you're wondering, Super America has taken over for SuperDog. We no longer speak of SuperDog, and I'm sure I will have to make a new cape. Super America will become a movie with a great soundtrack, featuring songs by "The Who," and one original written by Little Elvis about buildings. At this point in time, he wants Columbia Pictures and TriStar to produce his movie.

He's 4.

When it was the SuperDog movie, it was going to be made by 50th Century Fox. For some reason, Little Elvis doesn't like 20th Century Fox. (This is not my doing, although my dad swears that it is.)
