Super Dooper Jezebel

Matt has been meaning to post this for a very, very, very long time and since I am trying to clean up the place I wanted to finally type this up and save it somewhere so we don't have to keep the paper copy hanging around the apartment. Anyway, this is a story that one of his elementary students wrote last semester. She's no longer at the school but she was part of one of the higher level elementary classes at the school. Keep in mind, this has not been edited, the story (and English) were actually this good.

Super Dooper Jezebel
Jezebel was perfect in every way. She was so perfect she was called "Super Dooper Jezebel". When other children came out of school they were sometimes untidy but Jezebel was always super dooper neat! Jezebel always kept her room tidy and she always put her things back in their boxes and she cleaned up after the cat.

When she went to play with her friends Jezebel always kept clean. When she had spots she always took her medicine. She could do up buttons and tie real bows on her lace-ups. Jezebel told other children not to do things because it was nice being perfect.

People began to get mad at Jezebel. One day a crocodile escaped from the zoo! The zookeeper said, "You naughty boy, you've eaten the best girl in the world!"
But crocodile always thinks, "I've tasted better!"

Actually I was duped. This is more of a summary of a book she read than an original story. Still, the English is good and the story is funny.

That's funny. The story of super dooper Jezebel (in German it's called "Picobello Barbara") has been my favorite story when I was little. I always wanted to be like Jezebel, although she was eaten by a crocodile. I still want to ;-) It's a coincidence, but I'm half Korean.

This is word by word copied from the original book . The book is called 'super dooper Jezebel' and it is by Tony Ross. I know it very well, because it is my daughter's favourite book.
