Fridge Flash: The Bad Guy

October 29, 2015

Six-year-old Jasper penned the crime thriller below to tell the story of the Bad Guy in his chalk art. We’re so excited to debut what is sure to be the first of many thrilling stories from the talented Jasper. 

The Bad Guy

So: this is a man inside of jail, and then he breaks out, steals the money, and then the police cars come after him. They shoot a taser at him, and then he’s captured, then they take the money back. The end.

Jasper is a six-year-old who spends a lot of his time making up stories and has recently started illustrating his ideas (and clearly he might have an interest in crime novels). He also really wants his Batman costume to come in the mail (This last sentence is from the dude himself! He also had strong opinions on the photo of him that was used).
