Star Weather – Episode IV: A New ‘Hog

1 Feb

Susanna Leonard Hill is having a Phyllis Fashion contest! Click HERE to read the rules and see the other awesome entries! We were supposed to have a Phyllis Fun Fashion Show but Phyllis is no fashionista! She is dashing, daring, beautiful, smart, dangerous… Right? Right!Β  So I introduce to you…

(cue the music)

Princess Phyllis – youngest member of the Galactic Meteorologists, but also member of the secret organization, the Rebel Chocolate-Eaters!


In her latest amazing feat Princess Phyllis has rounded up a squad storm-troopers. Here she is, posing with the guys before she herded them into a prison cell.


Phyllis also gave them their weekly forecast (“Dark and gloomy, with a chance of dampness”) and filed a report – “The galaxy will have an early spring.”

    This is GREAT, Erik! (And I’m going to be singing the you-know-what theme music for the rest of the day πŸ˜‰ )

      Thank you! I got a robe for Christmas (the plaid one I wore for the Sheep vid. was Dad’s πŸ™‚ ) with a Star Wars fabric. πŸ™‚

        I wear MY dad’s plaid robe, but shhh, don’t tell him I have it! But if your new one is soft and cozy, I bet It ‘s more appealing!


      • thiskidreviewsbooks February 2, 2014 at 7:30 pm #

        My new one feels the same as Dad’s (soft, cozy, comfy, warm, etc.), so I kept this one. πŸ™‚ How’d you end up with your dad’s robe? πŸ˜‰


      • julie rowan zoch February 3, 2014 at 12:54 am #

        Snuck it into my suitcase while visiting!

        *shakes head* And he hasn’t noticed yet? How long have you had it? πŸ˜‰

        10 years! But I gave him a beautifyul woolen robe for his birthday! He gets cold so easily, so I did him a favor!

    Very cool Princess Phyllis, Erik!


  5. patientdreamer February 1, 2014 at 3:35 pm #

    wow! and she’s a tough-nut too. Wouldn’t want to mess with her. Very cool, Erik!


  6. Fats Suela February 1, 2014 at 4:16 pm #

    Haha! This is so awesome, Erik! I just watched Episode VI this morning! =)


    • thiskidreviewsbooks February 1, 2014 at 6:43 pm #

      That’s my favorite one (actually, Phyllis’ blaster has a small “vi” at the tip of it). πŸ™‚ I love the plot in that one. Plus the ending. Yub nub! πŸ˜‰


  7. stanleyandkatrina February 1, 2014 at 4:18 pm #

    Sooo much fun, Erik! We love the scene you put her into. Paw-riffic.


  8. Patricia Tilton February 1, 2014 at 4:20 pm #

    You made me smile Erik! This is a very creative entry. Did Josie help?


    • thiskidreviewsbooks February 1, 2014 at 6:48 pm #

      Actually, no. Mom did (those are her toys and backdrop.). I drew Phyllis all by my self. πŸ™‚


  9. Penny Parker Klostermann February 1, 2014 at 4:24 pm #

    Great job, Erik! Love how your personality always shines through!


  10. KidLitReviews February 1, 2014 at 5:58 pm #

    Wow! Storm Troopers taken down. Only Princess Phyllis could do this. (Are her initials really P.P.) Well, I love it! And thanks for reminding me of this contest.


    • thiskidreviewsbooks February 1, 2014 at 6:52 pm #

      Actually Phyllis’ initials are P.G.H. (Phyllis Ground Hogana). Great entry! πŸ˜€


  11. Catherine Johnson February 1, 2014 at 6:36 pm #

    Erik, that is all kinds of awesome! Fabulous!


  12. Susanna Leonard Hill February 1, 2014 at 8:21 pm #

    OMG! You are so funny, Erik! LOVELOVELOVE the headphone hairdo! It’s perfect! πŸ™‚ And Phyllis loves being called princess – thanks for that – I’m going to have to call her Princess Phyllis all the time now! The really funny thing is that I was going to do a Star Wars Phyllis and then I said to my kids, you know, I bet Erik’s going to go with a Star Wars theme… I better think of something else! And I was right! (And you did a much better job than I would have!) Thanks so much for joining in the fun πŸ™‚


    • thiskidreviewsbooks February 2, 2014 at 7:24 pm #

      Whoa! You’re psychic! πŸ˜€ I really like your entry! Princess Phyllis looks great in it! πŸ™‚


  13. Darlene February 1, 2014 at 8:25 pm #

    Phyllis sure rocks that costume. Great job Erik!


  14. Stacy S. Jensen February 1, 2014 at 8:47 pm #

    Totally laughed out loud. Very cute one Erik!


  15. tinamcho February 2, 2014 at 12:32 am #

    How creative, Erik! I like how you took a picture of Phyllis and your Star Wars’ collection.


    • thiskidreviewsbooks February 2, 2014 at 7:29 pm #

      Actually, those are my Mom’s Star Wars toys. She kindly let me use them. πŸ˜€ Thank you Ms. Cho!


  16. angiekarcher February 2, 2014 at 1:43 am #

    Star Wars and Chocolate! What a combo…love everything about her!


  17. jama February 2, 2014 at 6:57 am #

    Totally awesome! I hope she’ll forecast lots of chocolate eating in the coming weeks. Chocolate donuts hairdo? πŸ˜€


    • thiskidreviewsbooks February 2, 2014 at 7:34 pm #

      Oh, she has – “On Monday, we’ll have lots of white – white chocolate, that is! On Tuesday, it’ll be dark – as in the darkest dark chocolate! On Wednesday, we’ll become nuts with our Milk Chocolate with Almonds!” πŸ˜‰


  18. viviankirkfield February 2, 2014 at 3:33 pm #

    Thank goodness we have Phyllis on our side! And I’m with her on the chocolate…we can make it hot chocolate with whipped cream just in case the cold weather stays.:) Love your photos, Erik…..Great outfit!


    • thiskidreviewsbooks February 2, 2014 at 7:39 pm #

      MMMMmmmm… Hot chocolate with whipped cream (and marshmallows, of course! πŸ˜› )… πŸ™‚ Thank you Ms. Kirkfield! πŸ˜€


  19. Myra GB March 17, 2014 at 11:35 pm #

    This is so great, Erik. I’d love to be part of that secret organization of Rebel Chocolate Eaters. πŸ™‚


    • thiskidreviewsbooks March 20, 2014 at 7:18 am #

      Help us, Dr. Bacsal, you are our only hope! We must face the evil sith, Health Abider! πŸ˜‰
