Here is a tiny Halloweensie story for the contest as thought up by Susanna Leonard Hill.
Liam and Megan raced through the carnival, laughing and giggling, out of breath. Gasping for air in the shadow of a roller coaster, they jumped as it raced past. Coming to a tent, the dark opening made Liam pause. He pulled on Megan’s arm to bring her inside and saw a Jack o’lantren on the table. Suddenly Liam turned and said “boo”, making her jump three feet in the air. “Stop it” Megan said, taking his hand, and saw the old woman with a tub of candied apples. Both said “Yum, Yum”. The end
The Contest: write a 100 word Halloween story appropriate for children, using the words boo!, candied apple, and jack o’lantern (these words were randomly selected from the words you submitted here and on Face Book!) Your story can be scary, funny or anything in between, poetry or prose, but it will only count for the contest if it includes those 3 words and is 100 words (you can go a little under, but not over!) Now do you get it? Halloweensie – because it’s not very long and it’s for little people 🙂
