It Was a Very Good Night

Marion's Superkitty Tales and Children's Books

Happy Halloween, everyone! Enjoy the story.

Tiger was the only cat in the family. There were also two dogs, and they got along with each other very well. Tiger had seen what happened with the dogs around the time of Halloween and he would hide. He didn’t want humans putting all kind of costumes on him. Yuck! The dogs looked so silly, but they’d just wag their tails and act like they were all happy about it. That wasn’t for Tiger. No, sir, cats didn’t do that!

It was time for Halloween again. “Oh, no”, thought Tiger. “Time for me to find a place to hide!” However, things were going to be different this year.

Halloween Short Story: Would you Like Flies with That?

Nicholas C. Rossis

This short story started, like so many of my stories, with a dream. I wrote it down and turned it into a story, then MMJaye pointed out that the ending needed something more original that what I had in. I reworked it into the present format giving it a Halloween twist and a completely new ending. I hope you enjoy it – and happy Halloween!

Today’s book review comes from Karen, she blogs at


Karen chose to read and review Disappearing In Plain Sight by Francis Guenette


My Opinion

The book introduces you to Lisa-Marie, a teenager whose grandmother sends her to her aunt Bethany at Crater Lake for the summer. The little community around Izzy – trauma counsellor at Camp Micah –  in the cabins by the lake also welcomes another summer guest. I will not tell you more about the story than shown in the Goodreads plot description. This would spoil the fun of reading this book yourself.

With Disappearing in Plain Sight, Francis Guenette has created a story that doesn’t let you off the hook The reader gets to know the community members pretty soon. The characters, their ways of dealing with stuff, their feelings, and the events are very real. You may often think differently, however you know that…

Seumas Gallacher

…yeez’ve seen me post stuff like this before… so if yeez don’t wish to listen, just click and move along, folks, NUTHIN to see or trouble yeez here… every quill-scraper has favourite things that oft-times propel them into ‘the mood’ for certain passages of their scribbling… call it yer Muse if yeez like… when this ol’ Jurassic feels the pull toward reflectiveness, it’s the haunting Celtic music that effortlessly transports me there every time… particularly the ‘pipes…and even more particularly, the slow, pibroch laments or ‘yearnings’… there’s a special ‘resonance’ in that music that hits deep into my soul, and I’d hazard a thought that p’raps many more of yeez out there of a certain age feel the same ‘stirrings’… yeez get it with tunes like ‘Amazing Grace’… another is ‘The Flowers of the Forest’… and of late, the current Poppy Appeal features a special favourite…
