Oh No! I Have The Doodle Pox.
Picture and Story By Rontee Barnes


My name is Jay and I loved to doodle. I  doodled on the walls. I even doodled in the halls. I  doodled on my test. I got so creative that I doodled on my desk. I doodled on the sidewalk. I even doodled while I talked. Doodling was my thing. Then one day I noticed that I had  red dots all over, so my mom took me to the doctor.
The docotor said, "Jay I must confess, that your doodling has  finally made a mess!"  Oh No! I had the doodle pox. The only cure was no more doodling in the hall, not even on the walls. I couldn't doodle on my test and for sure not on my desk. I had to forget about the sidewalk and when I talked, I just had to talk. My doodling had to come to an end.
