My kids have got really into Halloween this year, fuelled by their love of Scooby Doo. We settled down with pens and paper and started to draw, as they drew I asked questions, scribbled down what they said and before long we had a story.
Once upon a time on a dark, windy night there was a witch who lived in a haunted house, on a haunted hill. No one ever goes there because, when the door opens it is a witch, and she turns you to stone. This is what she did to my Daddy.
She makes the whole kingdom sad, she has taken over and she makes everyone do what she says and buy only her stinking cabbages to eat. They look nice but they are poisonous. Sometimes the witch has money poking out of her pockets and the children steal them.
Now there are only five people left in the kingdom and the others have been turned to stone. The cabbages are turning people to stone. The five people left are Scooby Doo, Daphne, Fred, Velma and Shaggy.
They went to solve the mystery but the witch chased after them. Daphne got caught, The witch put a spell on Daphne and turned her to stone. The others had to free Daphne, they put water on the statue and she got free.
But then the witch came after them again. They put her back in her spell book, Fred squashed her in tight. She screamed ‘Eeeeeeek’ and disappeared in a cloud of smoke.

Asda sent L the costume, some face paint and drawing materials and have offered to make all the children’s stories into a book. It’s also a competition, so if you liked the story she would love you to comment.
