When did you first start writing?
Like most children I wrote poems as soon as I could print and spell. Around the age of ten I wrote my first short story. It was a scary story and not very good. Even so, I loved writing it.
Mysteries comes in many forms.
A lost hat which is always in one place.
Maybe you find foot prints strange ones.
They aren't like any you've seen before.
Can you solve the mysteries
of what to do, what they found
and how to save someone
before time runs out?
Life can be scary when your little and doing things for the first time. It can even be scary when your big. Tiny is a very big pumpkin. But he may miss out again on a good time with friends because of his fears. He made a promise to his friend. Will he be able to keep it or will fear stop him?
