Sweet Susanna Hill has a new contest for us!  The Contest :   Write a  Valentines story appropriate for children  (children here defined as ages 12 and under)  maximum 214 words  in which  someone is grumpy !  Your story can be  poetry or prose , sweet, funny, surprising or anything in between, but it will only count for the contest if it  includes someone grumpy  (can be the main character but doesn’t have to be) and is  214 words max  (get it? 2/14 for Valentines Day)  You can go under the word count but  not over ! Title is not included in the word count.   No illustration notes please! Here's my entry coming in at exactly 214 words. Happy Valentine's Day!  The Three Billy Goats Valentine's Gamble By Lauri C.
