    Most kids today don’t even know who Little Bow Peep is.

    Next year, wrap her in duct tape to keep her from squirming and she can go as the Mummy.

    I think Little Bo Peep is just tugging at her dress to get it off.

    Looking at the strip carefully, it appears Lizzie is perfectly happy with the costume up through Panel 2. However, in Panel 2, John’s word balloon sinks in on top of poor Lizzie and after that she is pulling at her uncomfortable costume. It just gets worse in Panel 4, when John’s word balloon sinks in on top of Lizzie again. John’s words are too heavy. He should lighten up!

    Howtheduck, sorry, but you’re misreading it. In panel 2, where John’s balloon is voluminous, Lizzie has a smile on her face. In panel 3 she starts pulling at her hat or the back of her dress (while mom is talking), and in panel 4 she is pulling on her sleeve.

    Since most moms are working today, very few have the time or have learned the skills to sew. The same can be said for the dads. Most of them can’t saw a piece of wood without cutting themselves.

    I was Little Bo Peep in first grade in 1953 : )

    My dad made my wooden staff for me. (And stilts. I loved those stilts!) I didn’t have a sheep, tho. My Beagle covered in fake fleece would have been good to go, I think.

    They should take Farley, too. He IS a Sheepdog.

    Of course this strip originally ran over ten years ago you must remember. Putting such young children in such restrictive clothes reminds them how good it feels to go naked, i.e. birthday suit. Maybe she can loosen it a bit for her. So she won’t feel like she is suffocating. Maybe lighten it too.

    “You’ll wear this costume, and LIKE IT!”

    “I’ll wear it, but I won’t like it!”

    In panel 3 she’s pulling the hat off.
