Snap Apple Fright (99 words)

By Corine Timmer (second entry)



On the night of All Hallows’ Eve,

Granny Smith a plan did weave.

Ever since the village kids’ foolery,

Her thoughts had grown ultra-delusory.

Dressed in rags and a witch’s shawl,

She sneaked into the village hall.

In the cauldrons her apples were nodding.

Their plan would surely get somebody sobbing.

She injected each apple with cochineal cream,

A potion so red it could make you scream.

When the villagers flocked to the feast,

Granny Smith escaped on her beast.

In a shiver of wind she could hear the howls,

And all the little devils threw in their towels.

It´s that time of year again. Susanna Leonard Hill´s Halloweensie Contest. YAY! :)

The Contest: 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 shiver, cauldron, and howl.

Here is my entry,


Pet Cemetery Picnic (100 words)


“I don’t like trick-or-treating,” Lily said. “Why don’t we have a pet cemetery picnic?”

Alfie shivered at the thought.

“Don’t you wonder what ghost mutts do on Halloween?” Lily continued.

“I guess,” Alfie mumbled.

So, they filled a picnic basket with treats and set off . . .

“Look! There’s a ghost in the cemetery!” Alfie howled.

“Don’t be such a wuss,” Lily said. “It’s a man.”

“I am the critter-sitter,” the man explained, while stirring in a cauldron. “Who wants some pet stew?”

Alfie’s knees wobbled.

Then, out of nowhere, dogs and cats appeared and joined in the feast.
