King Jalapeno: A Story by Boo

As regular readers know, my son Boo is a prolific writer and illustrator. It's impossible to keep up with everything he produces, but every once in awhile (such as today, when I was cleaning the house in preparation for my in-laws' five day visit), I find a gem.

Thankfully, Boo has allowed me to share it with you here. (We're at the age where I can't freely blog my kids' charming ways; I need to ask permission.) He says that the Dos Equis' "Most Interesting Man in the World" ads were, obviously, his inspiration for this, but King Jalapeno comes straight from his imagination.

He wrote this at the library on Monday, when his summer camp group visited the children's department. (He had no interest in reading.)


King Jalapeno's: Episode 1 

Episode 1: They're spicy. 

He  isn't a fan of basketball. The basketball is a fan of him. 

His fortunes never come true because of his faith.
Your wish will come true. 

Or is it?

His statue is bigger than Einstein at the library. 

He is King Jalapeno. 

I don't always eat peppers.
But when I do, I perfer King Jalapeno's Chili Peppers. 

Stay hungry my friends. The End. 

I may not like jalapeno peppers but my God, I love that kid.

Definitely a talent to be nourished! Of course, I'm partial to jalapenos, but King Jalapeno is pretty remarkable. :)
