We just started reading the Captain Underpants series by Dav Pilkey to Magoo.  If ever there was a boy who would appreciate the humor in Captain Underpants - it's Magoo.  He loves them.
And they have inspired a story of his own - Toilets vs. Pteranadons - which he wrote and illustrated with some minor help from his father.

Page 1:  The Toilet.  "Yum, Yum, Eat the Pteranadons up."
Page 2: The Pteranadons have bombs.  "I will defeat you.  Now is the time to make toilets extinct!"

Page 3: The toilet blocks the extinction.  "Ha ha! You can't get me!" (There are bombs exploding at the top of the page.)
Page 4: The Master toilet throws a fire bomb.

Page 5: The pteranadons catch on fire.  "Uh oh."
Page 6: The toilet king is happy.

The End.

Sorta looks like the toilet king turned into a crab there - but hey - as long as he's happy.

Last night we were reading a book about butterflies.  There was a page about what animals eat butterflies and they specified birds as their biggest predators.  Magoo said something along the lines of - "I wish they (butterflies) had a secret knife."  I couldn't help but think was an awesome picture book that would be: Badass Butterfly Assassins.  Maybe that will be the next one?

Oh boy, am I glad I have a girl or what!

I bet those boys had a grand time creating this wonderful story. Can't wait to see what they come up with next!
