A double whammy today of poems and a pic. This is the poem from the second book, Little Elf, Big Problem.
Some issues arose with the name as it has, just as Big Trouble did, some negative connotations. I think though, Squidge being a cute fellow who gets in the kind of trouble that a child who was left with a jar of opened chocolate spread would, can pull it off.
Squidge – Little Elf, Big Problem.
If you eat lots of chocolate and you’re not very tall,
If you can’t go on rides ‘cos you’re ever so small,
If you just cannot reach that jar on the shelf,
You’re either a very small child or an elf.
In our story today it’s an elf who’s the star,
Squidge, the littlest elf by far,
But before we meet Squidge and join in his fun,
Before we find out why our friend has to run,
We need to make sure that some other stuff’s done
And so our adventure starts: three… two…
“One more and then we can get out of here,” shouted the chief elf as he put the last of the covers on the big machines. “Right oh,” came the reply from his assistant.
