Jack and Jill
We all know the nursery rhyme: "Jack and Jill went up the hill to fetch a pail of water. Jack fell down and broke his crown and Jill came tumbling after." What isn't commonly known is that Jack is Jill's little brother, and that Jill was being a bully and pushed Jack so that he fell down the hill, tearing his clothes and getting grass stains, and banging his poor head. Jill was laughing so hard at the sight of poor Jack rolling down the hill that she lost her balance and rolled down as well. Fortunately for Jill, she didn't get so much as a scratch on her- although she was in BIG trouble when they got home with no water and Jack looking like he'd been beat up. Jack got all bandaged up and had some fresh baked chocolate chip cookies, while Jill was forced to take a long time out. That's karma, baby! :D
This is one of the first in a series of plush that I'm doing called " Children Behaving Badly," my interpretations of some of the nursery rhymes I heard so much of as a kid. When you think about it, there aren't that many in which children are actually being good...
