Easter is coming and that means CANDY! Yes, candy. Candy, candy, candy.
Don’t do what Jay and Kay did. When the Easter Bunny came last year, he left them each a big chocolate egg. Instead of listening to their mom and dad, they ate the whole thing in one day! That’s right! Mom and Dad said eat a little bit today, and save some for tomorrow and the next day.
Of course, once Achy arrived, he called in… you guessed it! Too-Tired, the worst Crabbie in the whole wide world and the universe too.
Jay and Kay were sick and that made them tired. Achy and Too-Tired were so happy. They love Easter, so be on the lookout for them so they don’t ruin your day.
On holidays, if Hungry or Achy or Too-Tired or Get-Along or Junk-Food or King or Can’t-Do or Hurry-Up show up, it’s not unusual for the entire Crabbie crew to be sneaking around.
No way will Jay and Kay let that happen again. This Easter, they will listen to the adults and won’t eat all their candy in one day!
Just remember–You can be a CrabbieMaster and beat the Crabbies too!
Hi everyone! Jay here.
Kay and I were outside playing when we spotted King hiding in the bushes. We knew right away that he was going to call on one of the Crabbies to come ruin our day.
Sure enough, King had called in Get-Along and all of a sudden Kay didn’t want to play anymore.
“Why not?” I asked.
“Just don’t,” she said.
Well… that wasn’t like Kay at all. So, I asked her again.
“Why don’t you want to play with me?”
“You were cheating!” she said.
“I was not! Why would you say that?”
“Because you were!”
Oh boy. I knew right away what was happening.
“Kay! Look behind the bush. Who do you see?”
And, there he was.
I knew Get-Along was getting to Kay and I knew what we had to do!
“Come on, Kay. Let’s send Get-Along away so we can play!”
We know what they like, we just don’t do it!
We know what they don’t like, we get right to it!
We chanted until Get-Along was well out of sight. “So long Get-Along! You too, King! Get a move on!”
Kay and I were able to go back to playing right away. We had a good time and we got along just fine!
See you next time! (Sorry, not you Get-Along!)
We are very excited as our illustrator, Erik, finishes the artwork for our CrabbieMasters series. He’s doing an awesome job! We love the picture above! It really shows what we’re all about. Powering-Up and keeping the Crabbies away today and every day!
Our editor has been busy working on a special project for us. We can’t wait to share the CrabbieMasters program and our books with you!
That’s all for today! Keep the Crabbies away and have a good day!
Yours in beating the Crabbies,
Well… not always. But we want to share with all of you how we tricked the Crabbies on April Fool’s Day. We were so busy pranking them that we didn’t have time to blog. So, here goes…
Jay and I woke early. We got ready for school, ate a good breakfast and went to the car right when Mom asked us to. She dropped us off and we went right to our classroom.
Usually, one or two of the Crabbies will come to our room window and they will try to get us to do something we shouldn’t do. This time, we let them think they were successful! We got our whole class, and even our teacher, in on it.
Sure enough, Too-Tired showed up. We all put our heads on our desks and pretended to be asleep. Our teacher did too! Too-Tired got so excited. He laughed and cheered and ran off calling for King. “King! King!” he shouted as we all tried hard not to laugh. “I am incredible! I am super special! The whole class is asleep! I am such a genius!”
King came running as fast as his little claws would carry him. “Let me see,” he said in his gruff voice as he peeked in the window. I opened my eye just enough to catch his grumpy face pressed against the glass. I tried so hard not to laugh, but seeing King with his face smoothed against the glass was just too much for me… I let loose, and everyone else looked up and they laughed too!
APRIL FOOL! I shouted. GOTCHA TOO-TIRED! GOTCHA KING!
Oh… they weren’t happy. “Not funny, Kay!” Too-Tired whined.
We all waved goodbye to Too-Tired and King.
See ya later, alligator… er… Crabbies!
And that’s how we fooled the Crabbies!
