The Witch — Cycle 75+


The Witch — Cycle 75+


The robots are at a busy Halloween party. Tiff loses track of her mom and tries to find her, but each time she goes up to a witch it is someone else. Then Tiff remembers that Mom's costume had a red wig. She finds her mom at last and realizes the monsters aren't nearly as scary as being separated from her mom.

Full Text:

See the ghosts, bats, and monsters.

Mom is dressed as a witch.

Tiff is lost. She needs Mom!

This witch has a black cat.  It is not Mom.  

That witch is green. It is not Mom.  

Tiff said, "I know! Mom has a wig!"

Tiff tugged the hair on each witch. "This is real hair!" the witch said.  

Tiff tugged that wig.  

"Mom!" said Tiff. "Monsters don't scare me, but I am scared if I am lost!"

Mom hugged Tiff and gave her the wig.
