My almost 7 year old has been secretly making a comic series, and the other day, he revealed his work in progress to me.
I thought it was the coolest thing ever! I was so impressed with the consistency of his cover designs and drawings. It was all inspired by Star Wars, of course.
But he was gutted (very disappointed) when I mentioned that he had spelled MONSTERS wrong.
So he decided that “MOSTERS” was the name of the alien race.
I had absolutely no idea what was going on in the story, but I just loved his episode titles: Old World, New World, Start of Journey, Treasures, End of Journey, Return of the Moster, Moster War and 9000 Years.
The funniest thing was that, during the week, he would ask me really random, out-of-the-blue questions – and I now realize that he was doing research.
“Mum, do you think journeys are very exciting?”
“Is 9000 years a long time?”
I’d be like, “EH? Wha? What are you talking about mate??”
It was all just too cute. I had to take a picture and share.
