The Cookie Monster Blues

By: Amy Jo Piedade

A picture drawn by Amy Jo

Cookie Monster used to be happy

He gobbled up all the cookies

That’s how he got his name

He is big and blue


Now he is a veggie monster

And he is green

Now he is healthy- he eats all the veggies

He teaches children to also be healthy

Now I am blue cause I miss

The old Cookie Monster.
