Here is my entry:
Ghost vs. Frankenstein
Each fall, Ghost hatched a ghastly trick.
This year, Spook Potion made stairs slick.
He dripped a dose, then heard a scream.
Frankie slipped and ripped a seam.
Body parts flung all about,
with loads of padding busting out.
Ghost felt bad and called the witches.
They swooped in to mend ripped stitches.
Cobweb stuffing, staples, goo,
fixed up Frankie good as new.
Ghost apologized to Frankie,
while boohooing in his hanky.
“Ghost, I thought you’d catch on faster.
You’re the student. I’m the master.
I predicted what you’d do
and tripped on purpose –
trick’s on you!”

Oh, this is funny! I nearly burst a seam. Well done!

Now that was an unexpected ending – and a clever Frankenstein! Great job and good luck!
Tricks galore! How fun.
This was awesome! Good luck.
I like that the trickster got tricked. And enjoyed the cobweb stuffing and goo to fix Frankie. Good Luck.
Thanks, Maria! And thanks for helping Susanna with her wonderful contest!
I love this!!!
What a surprise ending, well done!
Kelly, what a fun, fully-developed story, with scenes to visualize, and entertaining lines like “slipped and ripped a seam” and “boohooing in his hanky.” Great entry!
Thank you, Heather!
Super story! Love the visual! Good luck in the contest!
This is great, Kelly! I love the visual of Frankie’s body parts flying everywhere, and the mending, really fun : D
Very clever and good rhymes. Nicely done!
