Fridge Flash: Cold Bottom Bart and the Ship of Fire

May 1, 2019

Today’s Fridge Flash comes from 7-year-old Dash Taylor, who had to write an adventure story during his spring break camp. It includes chapters AND cliffhangers. We are providing a translation here, with the original handwritten story below.

Cold Bottom Bart and the Ship of Fire

Chapter 1: The Ghost Ship

Once there was a pirate named Cold Bottom Bart. He had a ghost ship and it was made out of fire. But he never went in it.

Chapter 2: Cold and Fire Are Not the Same Thing

He never got in it because his first name is Cold and the ship is made out of fire. SO … he takes a deep breath and goes in to the ship.

Chapter 3

He felt something. It felt different. He looked down and gasped. He was on fire.

Chapter 4: Hot Bottom Bart

From this day, he has been called Hot Bottom Bart.

The End

Dash Taylor is a 1st grader who enjoys playing with stuffed animals and LEGOs and eating ice cream. He loves his mom and dad. He wants to be an engineer and an artist when he gets older.
