The Scarlet Ibis Comic Strip
This storyboard does not have a description.
When the baby was born, everyone thought that he was going to die.
However he did not, and they decided to name the baby Doodle because he crawled backwards like a doodlebug.
"We should name him Doodle!"
Doodle was very attached to his brother. He wanted to go everywhere with him. Because Doodle could still not walk, the brother had to drag Doodle around in a cart everywhere.
“ If I so as picked up my hat he would start crying to go with me…”
One day in Old Woman Swamp, Doodle's brother decided to teach him how to walk, as he did not want a disabled brother.
Eventually, after a lot of training, he could finally walk and perform many other tasks as well.
Sitting at lunch, the family suddenly heard a loud croaking noise. It was coming from a fatigued Scarlet Ibis. The bird fell through the bleeding tree and lay still. At this moment, Doodle decided to bury the bird.
That same day the two boys went down to Horseshoe Landing for a swimming lesson. However, a terrible thunderstorm started, and the two boys ran for their lives.
Doodle's brother, being faster, left the boy behind. When the brother came back for Doodle, he found the boy sitting dead with blood covering his mouth, neck, and chest. Doodle had died.
