It’s one of my favourite times of year again. Yes, it’s time for Susanna Leonard Hill’s Halloweensie contest.
Here is a condensed version of this year’s rules, as taken from her website:
“Write a 100 word Halloween story appropriate for children (children here defined as 12 and under) (title not included in the 100 words), using the words candy corn, monster, and shadow. (Candy corn will be counted as 1 word.)”
I hope you enjoy reading this year’s story as much as I liked writing it.
Monster’s Delicious Treat?
Monster wished that kids would run screaming from his Hallowe’en decorations instead of from his mom’s treats.
Carrotgrams instead of candygrams.
Cauliflower instead of marshmallows in the s’mores.
“Why must everything be nutritious? I just want it to be delicious,” said Monster to his best friend, Shadow.
“Boys, I have a treat for you. Candy corn,” yelled Monster’s mom.
“Candy corn?” The boys dashed to the kitchen.
Mom held out a plate covered in long shapes.
“What’s this?” asked Monster.
Mom smiled. “It’s candy covered corn on the cob.”
Thanks for stopping by!
