Well, I decided to do another one! Please be sure to visit Susanna Leonard Hill’s website to read more Halloweensie stories. They’re super-spooky-silly-fun!
Festus Flamel wants the biggest, roundest, screamiest pumpkin ever.
“My Monster-Gro potion should do the trick!”
A sprinkle a day, and his pumpkin grows … and grows … and grows. His pumpkin grows sooo monstrous that it squashes his house.
Festus tunnels through the gourd-gantuan beast.
“I can work with this.”
Festus digs out the stringy guts. He carves a gap-toothed maw beneath two moon-slit eyes. He stitches cobwebs across its bulbous ribs and lights a fire.
Then, he bakes.
When masked marauders come haunting, the Jack-o’cavern yawns.
For a scream, Festus serves the perfect Halloween treat—whole-brain pumpkin-bread.
