Naughty Kevin

There is a very naughty boy called Kevin at my school. He always disobeys the teachers and he never does his homework. I have never seen him do his homework. My friends and I feel unhappy when we see him because he is always unfriendly.

One time he stole a knife from the canteen. Now we distrust him because we know he is dishonest and dangerous.

Another time I saw him kick a puppy and stand on a beetle. He really is unkind. When he is especially bad the teachers make him kneel in the sunshine. Even when his knees are really sore he never learns his lesson.

Sometimes I wish he would just disappear.
