My Storyteller

Lately Francesco has been telling me stories. He likes to make them up with a familiar spin. This is the one he told me on the way home from school the other day.

F: Once upon a time there was a duck. (a long pause)

You need to ask a question Mommy!

Me: Not sure what to ask I say, “was it a big duck or a little duck?”

F: Medium duck.

That duck was looking for friends and he found a straw house. He decided to make lunch. Then all the sudden, he hears (he leans over and knocks on the wall). (In a deep voice he says), “little duck, I mean medium duck, medium duck let me in!”

The medium duck goes over and opens the door and sees the big bad Zebra. He says, “Not by the hair of my chinny, chin, chin.”

The Zebra turns around, pick up his legs and says, “then I’ll kick the door in.” The duck runs down the street to find his friend and he finds a frog. (a long pause)

You need to ask a question Mommy!

Me: So I ask the same question as before, “was it a big frog or a little frog?”

F: Medium frog.

The duck and the frog make lunch, salad, cheese, salad. Then all of the sudden (again the knock at the door) and the big bad Zebra said, (in a deep voice)“little frog, little frog, no wait I mean medium frog, medium frog let me in!” The frog says, not by the hair of my chinny, chin, chin or ducks.

So the Zebra turns around, picks up his legs and kicks the door in.

All of the sudden Spiderman swoops in and says, “don’t worry I’ll save you.” He put them on his super fast motorcycle and zooms down the road to the finish line and wins the race!

The End
