All Abot Davy Crockt, By Lily G

Lily brought home the report she did on Davy Crockett, and it's too funny and cute not to share. Pictures and text by Lily, sic all. My comments are in ital.

Davy Crockett fought at the Battle of the Alamo

(don't you just love the big smiley face as he shoots someone?)

He had a wife. She got sick and she died. He got another wife.

(Good to know the first wife was so easily replaceable. I love the Xs on the dead wife's eyes)

In the Battle of the Alamo the Mexicans won. Davy Crockett died in the battle of the Alamo

(That's poor old Davy there on the bottom in brown. He has a sword sticking out of him. One of the Texians is saying "Curse you!" The Mexican soldiers are cheering.)

He was a hero because he protected his men.
(I'm guessing that's Davy up in the dream bubble with a coonskin hat on.)

No surprise really about the smile on DC as he kills someone-remember the drawing of Lily tossing poor baby Elizabeth in the air.
"She likes it!"
The whole thing is cute-where did she do her research?

is davy crockett some sort of vampire that stabbing him in the chest with a cross kills him?

and at least first wife's death scene got the majority of the page. the remarriage was only a slight affair.
