The Story Begins …
Once upon a time there was a little girl called Megan who lived with her mother and father close to a forest, far away from their nearest neighbour.
One day, walking in the forest, Megan said to herself, I wish I had a friend to talk to. Then a voice said ‘I could be your friend’.
She looked up, but there was no bird talking to her in the trees.
She looked down but all she could see was a beautiful mushroom, growing on an old tree log.
And that was how Megan became friends with the last mushroom in the forest, and helped her new friend escape being taken by Gobble the Goblin who liked nothing better than a tasty mushroom stew …
Come up with a name for the story, intended to become an audio book, and a short 50 word description of how it continues.
Entry deadline November 30th, 2022
