The Legend of Lightning Larry is built on a pattern that repeats. You can have fun by writing new episodes on the same pattern. Share your writing with others by reading it aloud or acting it out together.

Pattern: Bad guys do something nasty. Lightning Larry shoots them with bolts of light. The bad guys become good and undo what they’ve done, in a funny way.

Write your own: Invent new outlaw names. Think up a nasty deed. Tell how the outlaws undo it.
