Welcome to Episode 8 in our series where I, the great Aunt, team up with Landon, the great nephew, to bring you, our great readers, a-picture-with-a-poem sort of thing. In each episode, I write a poem and Landon illustrates my poem. If you missed previous episodes, you can view them by clicking below.

Episode 1: An Adventuresome Moose
Episode 2: Robot Repair
Episode 3: OUCH!
Episode 4: Frolicking Foliage
Episode 5: Trick-or-Treats
Episode 6: Peach Pie
Episode 7: Leftover Turkey

The past few episodes have been all about food. Sugary trick-or-treats. Peach pie. Leftover turkey. What can I say? We like to eat! And what we like inspires us. So, the trend continues as Landon and I bring you a sad but true story.

  1. Penny, I adore your nephew’s art. He really is talented. Love the way you two work together. This is just an awesome idea. You are a genius with rhyme. Maybe someday I’ll be close to you. But I could never pass you. Your talent for rhyme is just amazing. Thanks for coming by to visit. It makes me smile when I see you have visited my blog.

  2. Okay, you’ve just given me my next language activity. LOVE this. I love this collaboration. Just precious and such a wonderful to support the young artists in our lives. Well done. The poem and the illustration are both well done. haha

  3. This is such a fun series. You know you could have a teachers aid with this. i.e…. What other evidence might be found in or around the area? Where do you think the criminal might have gone? What or who is the next victim? etc.. (just saying) 😉
    You are a dynamic duo! Hoping to see more in the new year. 🙂
