Lil's I-Spy

It's me! Lil!!
If you read Jim's 
By-Mistake Guide to Norfolk 
you'll think I hit him all the time
with a stick . 
Well, he is very annoying and you'd probably feel like hitting him
too. But I never manage to 
get him - he's too fast. 
In fact I am a very nice girl and kind to animals.
