Through the eyes of a child: 'Pee Wee's Big Adventure'

Photobucket


A couple of weeks ago, I let the 1st and 2nd grade students in my after school class watch Tim Burton's Pee Wee's Big Adventure. They loved the film from the opening dream sequence at the Tour de France all the way to the drive-in movie finale. One student loved the film so much that he wrote the following synopsis of the film as a writing assignment for his regular 2nd grade class.

Thought you might want to take a look at it:

That synopsis was written much better than most on imdb.
