entry for Susanna Hill’s 10th annual Halloweensie contest
Bonaparte had no body, which made it hard to fit in.
He longed to be a real Boy.
Halloween was his chance.
His MASK and disguise were ready.
“Hey, kid, you forgot your costume,” said a voice.
He’d fooled a human!
“What if I make CREEPY noises like this?” he asked, rattling his bones.
“Better, but you still need a disguise.”
Only one thing to do.
Pulling off his costume,
he became himself again – a bone-fide SKELETON.
“Awesome!” said the real Boy. “Let’s go!”
Bonaparte loved Halloween. He fit in perfectly, without even trying!
