This is a favorite from Bob Munsch''s live storytelling
Brigid is on the trail of the ultimate felt marker. At first,
she''s satisfied to be drawing wonderful pictures. But soon she
must have the markers that wash off with water. Then she needs the
markers that smell.
But she''s happiest when she gets the
super-indelible-never-comes-off-till-you''re-dead markers. She
draws brighter-than-real lemons and roses and then goes too far:
Brigid draws on herself. Nothing will remove the color, so Brigid
reaches deep into the box of markers, finds the people-colored
marker, and covers up all the other colors. She looks better than
before, too good to be true.
And Brigid is certain that no one will find out her secret.
Especially since her father awakes from a nap and looks in the
mirror. He looks a bit too good to be true too.
