A narrative about a little boy and a curious creature, with accompanying activities.
Nothing exciting ever happened to Sam. It seemed that he was destined to live a life of monotony – each normal, completely forgettable day following the next.
But then came Halloween.
This narrative text tells the tale of a young boy, Sam, who encounters a very curious creature while trick-or-treating with his friends.
