Bob the burglar (a story by Eero, who is 8 years old, and whose first language is Finnish)
Once upon a time there lived a bad burglar called Bob. Bob was an angry looking person. He looked a bit messy.
Also there lived a good person called Sam. Sam was a policeman and he was nice to people.
On a rainy day Bob stole 1,754 sparkly jewels from the humongous bank. He also stole 12,367,459,876,890 dollars from the bank because he wanted to be rich.
When morning arrived Sam had already woken up. He saw Bob with the stolen money. Bob was riding his motorbike. Sam quickly got his bike and started riding towards Bob. When Sam had caught Bob he arrested Bob and Sam put Bob into the black, big, dark jail.
Eero sent me this story in April, it is on a wall in our kitchen.
We met up again this week and talked about sharing it. He wanted to do that. His mum approved.
If you have comments to share, I’ll pass them on.

Eero's mum handed me your website written on a post it note this morning. I am his class teacher and I have to say that he is so hardworking with such a great imagination that I would expect nothing less than this from him! He is now beginning to use fantastic metaphors and similes too.
I loved it and I really liked that he was precise with the amounts rather than settling for using general-isms such as lots or loads. 😀
I’ll tell him. Thanks for the feedback. Apologies for the delay in feeding back.
