“When you’re four you can do awesome tricks. You can do a tumble and a cartwheel. Actually I can’t do a cartwheel, but my sister can do that. She’s five years old and likes to play with me but I haven’t met her and I don’t know her name because she’s imaginary. She likes to fly. Her job is so save the day every time the bad guys try to steal the word. She is friends with Water Girl, and Fire Girl, and Wind Girl, and Shark Girl. Shark Girl has the power of sharks. She can save the world every single time. All she has to do is put out her hands and think really hard about sharks.”
