Spring has sprung! That means it’s time again for the Spring Fling Kidlit contest, hosted by Kaitlyn Sanchez and Ciara O’Neal. Many thanks to them and the generous prize donors for providing this opportunity! Using a gif for inspiration and limited to 150 words or less, I present this year’s entry:
Bogus Easter Bunny (117 words) Let’s take spring break in Ecuador. It’s tropical and sunny. We’ll search inside the jungle for a bogus Easter Bunny. It’s called the Bunny Harvestman and may look mighty cute, but underneath black bunny ears it’s poised, in hot pursuit of aphids, earthworms, snails, and slugs. It’s not a picky eater. Dead or living, it devours, keeping forests neater. The Bunny’s an arachnid. It’s harmless, yet bizarre. Those imitation yellow eyes are creepy--EEK! They are! When it’s disturbed, this daddy-long-legs squirts an awful scent, to make a predator think twice: you eat me, you’ll repent! So let’s record a video to show them back at school. We saw the Easter Bunny on our trip… April Fool!
