Time for the 4th Annual Halloweensie Contest with Susanna Leonard Hill. Hurry! Hurry! Don’t be late! Tomorrow is the last day to enter a 100 word Halloween story appropriate for children. The following words must be included in the 100 word story: pumpkin, broomstick, and creak. The story can be poetry or prose, funny or scary. That’s right; 100 words only.
Here is my entry:
The Pumpkin Contest
Many pumpkins are lined up and on display. Who will be the winner of the annual pumpkin contest?
The judges begin to weigh the pumpkins.
Mr. Scarecrow’s pumpkin is first. Lifting his entry onto the scale using his straw hat, the scale creaks. Can the scale hold the enormous pumpkin? Fifty-five pounds.
Next is Miss Witch. Scooting her gigantic pumpkin toward the scale, using her broomstick, the scale creaks again! Fifty-five pounds.
Final entry is from Mr. Pumpkin. Will Mr. Pumpkin break the tie?
Mr. Pumpkin sits on the scale. Creak! Creak!
We have a winner! Mr. Pumpkin!
