Children's author Susanna Leonard Hill has braved the 'Frankenstorm' to host the Halloweensie Contest. The entries must be one hundred words or less and include the words witch, bat, and "trick-or-treat." Everyone is welcome to join in through the rest of today. However, Susanna is willing to extend the deadline until Friday if anyone needs extra time due to power outages. Just let her know.
On a serious note, my thoughts and prayers go out to our East Coast friends who have had to endure the devastating path of Hurricane Sandy.
Which Witch Switch Hits?
The witch was up to bat,
She took a swing with her broom.
The ball was struck so hard,
It could have reached the moon.
The other team was outraged,
She must have cast a spell.
But she practiced hours everyday,
Surely they could tell.
Next the witch stirred a hearty brew,
And sprinkled horn of toad.
But the hex was not complete,
Without pumpkin pie ala mode.
Hence the team of trick-or-treaters,
Were transformed into a larvae of roach.
As the witch served the Bad Sport Potion,
Disguised as their disgruntled coach.
