Well! I was out for a walk in the Spooky Forest, and it started to rain. Luckily, I came across a big old house, so I’ve come in to shelter.
Ah, there’s a candle on the mantlepiece, I’ll light that so I can see a bit better…
Argh! What’s that shadow! It’s a giant bat!
Oh, no, it isn’t. Hello Bernard. Were you out for a walk too? At least you were sensible enough to bring an umbrella. Your shadow did look spooky!
Eek! A flying witch’s broom!
Oh! Hello Microvaark. What’s that? You’ve come to sweep up a bit? Jolly good. It is a bit cobwebby.
Yikes! A coffin!
Oh! It’s not a coffin, it’s Hypno, with a table. Odd thing to bring for a walk…
Argh! A ghost, a ghost!
Hmm, doesn’t look so ghostly now… Oh! It’s Dim, with the cloth for the table….
*shiver* That looks like a load of creepy gravestones….
Oh, hello Fury. You’ve brought the chairs to go with the table? Well, I suppose that’s a good idea…
Yikes! A huge spider web! Imagine the size of the spider!
Oh! It’s Esther, with decorations and bunting. Of course! We’re having a Halloween party!
Oh no! A terrible tentacled monster!
Oh hello Nano. You’ve brought paper streamers? Well done. Esther and Bernard can help you hang them up.
Eeek! That looks like Frankenstein’s monster with the square head and the bolts through the neck!
Oh, Arnold! Why are you carrying a bucket on your head? Ah! It’s for the apple bobbing!
Argh! A giant creepy hand!
Oh, it’s alright. It’s Peggy and Gino with a pot of cutlery for the buffet table. Good thinking.
*gulp* Is that a witch’s hat?
Oh. No. It’s Matilda with a big tall jelly for pudding!
Yikes! A spooky cauldron of potion!
Ah, it’s alright. It’s Ofelia with her big cooking pot, full of pumpkins!
*gasp* Is that an evil knifeman, or the Grim Reaper?
Oh, ok, it’s Ernest with a cake, and a knife to cut it with. Yum Yum!
Argh! Is that… a headless figure, stumbling towards us?
Oh, no, it isn’t. It was Winston and Vincent getting lost and looking which way to turn….
Well, what started as a rather spooky house has become a rather jolly Halloween party hasn’t it! We are going to have fun.
And thank goodness, there are no more spooky shadows, eh?
