Hello!

My name is Lily-Sue, but my mummy calls me Munchkin (or 'Munch' for short!) I am 8 years old, and this is where my mummy will help me write all about all the fun things we do together. I hope you enjoy reading about the adventures of my mummy and me, Munchkin, with the occasional appearance from the siblings - Beastie and Plumlet.

George / Asda's Halloween Spooky Scribes Short Story Challenge

Trick or Treat ...?!


I never really knew what Halloween was all about. I am only 3 years old, after all. This year, however, has been a little different. I walk around the shops and see these colourful decorations dominating the aisles and I can't help being intrigued. Witches and cats, pumpkins and ghosts, I'm beginning to quite like Halloween ... as long as the witches aren't too mean looking and the pumpkins aren't too haunting!!

We were set a challenge by George at Asda, aptly named the Halloween Spooky Scribes Short Story Challenge in which I am to create my own short Halloween tale. I was provided with a Fancy Dress outfit from their online range to help me and mummy to 'set the scene', and I was also given a fantastic Crayola set consisting of a sketch book and felt pens to assist me in my story writing! This is the outfit that I chose from the website ...


The Rainbow Witch Halloween Costume is available from the Girls' Halloween Costume section of the website and costs just £10. Mummy was really pleased with the quality of the outfit and thought it was outstanding value for money!

My costume arrived and mummy and I sat down and talked about stories and what I would like mine to be about. We hope you enjoy my story ... 

Rainbows at Halloween!


Once upon a time there was a little 'Rainbow Witch' called Rose who lived all by herself. She wasn't like a normal witch. This witch didn't like nasty spells or bubbling, smelly potions. Instead, she liked flowers, cute animals and, of course, rainbows. But every year, Halloween would come around and everything would look different. Pumpkins grew scary faces, black cats would cry out in the middle of the night, and trees seemed to take on frightening shapes. 

Rose decided she would change the way Halloween looked in her home forever! 

So she took out her Spooky Scribblers and her Beastly Book and started to draw. 



She drew things that would make people smile and decided that these would be the things that would decorate her house this Halloween! Instead of vampire bats and angry faces, she would draw pretty flowers and happy pumpkins. Instead of bubbling, smelly cauldrons she would draw sweets, cakes and candy canes!





From this day forward, The Little Rainbow Witch was known for making Halloween bright and colourful, with all the colours of the rainbow decorating her house. 



She could now look around her every year at Halloween and know that this time of year doesn't need to be dark, spooky or haunting, but can instead be bright, magical and full of the colours of the rainbow! And everyone she passed by would smile, and instantly feel a little bit of sunshine in their day that wasn't there before!

Make sure you keep an eye out for The Rainbow Witch this Halloween! She's always there to make the day a little prettier for you!!


Remember, this was Munchkin's story. Mummy has merely 'translated' it into a more reader friendly version!

All 'Proof Read' and approved by Munchkin!
