I happened upon a short story contest last week at Wordy Wanderings and guess what? My little story won! What a way to start my week! Thank you A. LaFaye!
The challenge? Write a children’s story in 100 words in which a child makes friends with their food. I figured it would be prudent to repost this here, just in case you missed reading 🙂
Sophie: One goldfish, two goldfish…
Sophie popped fishy crackers into her mouth.
Sophie: This fishy looks pale.
Plop! Fishy swam in tomato soup.
Sophie: Isn’t it hot?
Fishy: No. It’s warm.
Sophie: That’s why you’re pale.
Mom: Sophie, please eat your lunch.
Shark chased fishy.
Sophie: Quick, before he gets you!
Fishy: I’m shaking from my head to-ma-toes.
Sophie: Shark’s gone.
Fishy: I’ve always wanted to be a big fish in a little pond.
Sophie slurped some soup. She left a little for fishy.
Sophie: You’re queen of the pond now.
Mom: Did you finish your lunch?
