Lots of Love From
Auntie Gwen, Uncle Nick and
It was a busy day on Sesame Street, everyone weas preparing
for the big art exhibiton.
Lucy Andrews age 5, from Malahide was coming to judge the show. Lucy was bringing Patricia, Marie and Edith
to help her. The best artist would get a bright blue ribbon.
“Hurry everyone!” Big Bird called. “Siobhan will be here any
arrived with Patricia,
Marie and Edith. Big Bird was so happy to see Lucy that he gave her a warm hug and
welcomed everyone to Sesame Street.
After pointing out all the wonderful sights on Sesame Street, Big
Bird explained that the judging was about to begin!
“First stop is Oscar’s rubbish bin,” he said.
Oscar had made an unusual sculpture out of some things he’d
found in the rubbish. Lucy
was very impressed. But Oscar thought he had a little more work to do, so he
searched through his bin for the finishing touch. As rubbish came flying out of
the bin, Siobhan spotted the perfect piece – a flattened flugel horn.
“Wow, that’s trashy!” said Oscar. “That should do it!
Next they visited Cookie Monster. He had made a giant
picture of a cookie. Lucy
could practically taste the scrumptious looking treat.
“That is the best cookie I have ever seen,” declared Lucy.
Cookie Monster said as he took a large bite out of his
Lucy giggled, “Now it’s perfect,” she said.
Ernie and Bert waved Lucy, Patricia, Marie and Edith over to see their
baseball mural. They had painted a grass green baseball diamond covered with
bats and gloves. Bert paced back and forth nervously. Ernie tossed a ball to Lucy.”
“Nice catch, Lucy” he said.
walked over to Zoe, was was sadly holding up an empty frame. “I didn’t finish
my painting,” Zoe sighed.
“Look at your apron” Lucy said with a big smile. “It’s as beautiful
as any painting I’ve ever seen!”
Zoe quickly took off her apron and hung it inside the frame.
Then she blew Lucy
a big kiss! “Thanks Lucy!”
Big Bird guided the judges over to the Count’s display of
numbers. The Count had carved several giant numbers out of wood and painted
them in different patterns – delightful dots, cheeky checks and stupendous
“One, two, three, four, five, six. Six super numbers.” Lucy counted out loud
and the Count applauded. Siobhan smiled and followed Big Bird down Sesame Street.
“Hey Elmo” called Big Bird, “Are you ready for our judges?”
Elmo pulled aside a curtain to reveal a large picture made
up of tiny, brightly coloured triangles.
“Wow” said Lucy, “I’ve never seen so many triangles in one place before!”
“Elmo made it especially for Telly.” Elmo explained, “Telly
“Well Siobhan” Big Bird said, “It’s time for you to pick the
Lucy groaned and plopped down on a bench facing Big Bird. “I’m in trouble, Big Bird.
All the paintings are so great! How will I ever pick a winner?”
Big Bird shook his head sadly. “I wish I could help. Too bad
there’s only one blue ribbon.”
Lucy jumped up. “That’s it Big Bird, you’re a genius!”
“I am?” Big Bird smiled happily.
Lucy ran inside Mr Hooper’s store. She came back holding a handful of blue ribbons.
“Everybody’s a winner on Sesame Street!” Lucy shouted.
“Hurray!” Big Bird said, “Let’s have a party to celebrate.”
“I’d love to stay,” Lucy said, “But I have to get back to Malahide along with Patricia, Marie and Edith.”
“Well, don’t forget to come back and judge our dance
contest,” said Ernie.
“I won’t” called Lucy, as she waved goodbye to all her friends on Sesame Street.
