“Dot and Boy”

Inspired by the little dog from the board book “Each Peach Pear Plum, by Janet and Allan Ahlberg, here is my micro-story for two of the littlest characters.

Dorothy, known as Dot,

Was a tiny, misunderstood dog.

She blew raspberries at everyone for fun,

But they just found it odd.

One day she befriended a tiny,

Misunderstood little boy.

Who wore a uniform with a hat,

And blue trousers in corduroy.

Now that they are a pair, they’re

Invited to things like picnics.

No longer misunderstood, they

Make sense as each other’s sidekicks.

Janey’s Flash Fiction Friday: 

Short stories by me, inspired by picture book extras from the books I love.
