On a small tropical island there was a snake called Verdi. He is a little yellow snake that's going on an adventure to find out why some snakes want to grow up to be green so fast. He thinks if he's running and jumping all the time then he won't grow up to be green. Now he likes being green and he used to be scared to turn green. Just because he's green he can still move and have lots of fun.
My favorite part of the story is when Verdi turns green. I like it because it's really funny. He's funny because he didn't want to turn green. My favorite character is Verdi. I like him because he is really adventurous. This story is related to my life because he likes to go on adventures just like I do. This story does have pictures and they help tell the story. The pictures help the story because it shows what Verdi is doing.
I think others should read this story because it is a really funny adventure.
