Halloweensie Contest Entry


Thump, thump, crash!

In the shadow of the moonlight, a monster appears in my kitchen.

It’s eating my Halloween candy corn!

I whistle for my dog; he’ll scare the monster away. I must save my candy!

“Bark, Hercules!” I command, but Hercules only tilts his head.

“Get out of my house!” I yell, running toward the hallway.

Uh oh, the monster is following me!

Then it stops, and pulls at its ears.

Suddenly, out pops a different head. It’s my … brother?

Okay, so there’s no such thing as monsters after all.

Still, from now on, I’m hiding my Halloween candy.

    Bad brother! I used to hide my candy from my sister–and my parents, for that matter–so this story hit close to home. (There were lots of “monsters” at my house around Halloween!) Love that Hercules only tilts his head. Too funny.

  15. Hiding one’s Halloween candy is ALWAYS wise! Lesson learned!

  16. I don’t know, April! Some people would say monsters and brothers are the same thing! 🙂 Thanks for a fun, well-written entry and for joining in on Halloweensie!
