The Legend of Slappy Hooper 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: Slappy paints a billboard. The painting becomes real and gets Slappy in trouble.

Write your own: Invent a name for a company that hires Slappy, and a matching name for its owner. Tell what the billboard shows, and what happens when it becomes real.
