Boo and Starbuck

Starbuck and Boo softies

A few weeks ago H and I sat down to write a story together. After writing the story down, I promised him we would cut some bits of fabric to turn his story into some little plush creations with the help of some dylon fabric pens. It was a fun little project, I put the fabric in a small embroidery hoop so that H could draw and colour his creations.

The following is H's story of a little ghost named Boo and the friend he makes.

Boo and Starbuck
Story by H. Lowe

Boo was a ghost. Boo was bad at being scary. Boo met a little kitten. The kitten wasn’t scared at all of Boo.

Boo said “Boo!”

The kitten said “Meow.” And puffed up his fur.

Boo was very scared and sad. He flew away, crying. Boo hid in a tree. Boo cried “Boo hoo.” He was sad because he didn’t scare the kitten.

The kitten climbed the tree. “Don’t be sad.” said the kitten.

Boo said “ I wanted to scare you.”

The kitten said “My name is Starbuck and I’m not scared of anything!”

“I’m very bad at being a scary ghost.” said Boo. “All I can scare are mice.”

The kitten said “I’m bad at catching mice but really I’m very nice.”

Boo said “I can scare the mice for you, if you will be my friend.”

“OK lets be friends!” said the kitten Starbuck.

And that is the story of Boo and Starbuck.

I read this yesterday and 24 hours later I'm still thinking about it (note that I read ~ 100 blog posts yesterday catching up, so that's something) I think you have a great idea here and I might have to do something similar with my 3 year old. Thank you for sharing - I hope he treasures the softies forever.
