Boo is a movie maker.
He eats, sleeps and breathes making movies.
He knows when every movie studio was created, by whom, and when their first movies were released.
His ultimate goal is to work for Pixar.
Every day he is running around with his ipod, recording episodes for his ‘series’ or interviewing the ‘stars’ of his productions and then editing and making endless ‘credits’.
On Saturday he is havinga movie making party.
He handed out the invitations on the last day of school and has been busily planning the characters and scenes.
Problem is, only one child has RSVP’d.
And that kid doesn’t even have a part cause Boo barely knows him.
Every party Boo has had almost every kid has come.
But this one, not a birthday but something he has dreamed up himself, is really really important to him and the kids he has invited have moved on.
They are about to start high school.
So they have bigger things to think about than that funny little guy they went to primary school with.
A hard lesson is about to be learnt.
And I don’t know how he will take it.
Or how I will even be able to begin to help him understand.
I just hope that the kids he was closest to turn up.
I will make some cupcakes just in case.
