Cyclops Clyde - Told By Ma Cob

Here she is, Ma Cob, with her chilling new makeover.

Last week's post featured Ma looking strange and goofy, but far from macabre. Now this creepiest storyteller in cyberspace looks the part as she tells Cyclops Clyde, first short story in Trio of Haunting Tales. 

Cyclops Clyde
The Monster in Your Computer!

As you can see, it's almost 7 minutes long. Let's face it, many of you are short on time. If you're in a rush, I hope you'll keep Cyclops Clyde in mind for upcoming Halloween gatherings. It's a fun, scary tale for kids.

Teachers - Please Note: This story is a good tool for teaching alliteration.

It's been a heck of a week dealing with a big honkin' monkey wrench, and I'm way behind in everything. So much for trying to tie up all those loose ends before my new grandbaby, Punkin, makes his/her big debut into our wonderful, wild and wacky world. Any day now. (Told you last week I'm on an alliteration kick!)

In the meantime, I'll try to catch up with everyone's blogs.

One last thought: I realize many kids don't like spooky stories, but it seems like most of them do. Do you? Why do you think kids like scary stuff?

Would you believe I'm a big scaredy cat? Yep. There's got to be a bit of humor in order for me to deal with that stuff!

Egad Lynn, I don't like Kindles and Nooks and all those (pretend) books. But I love your story. So fanatically, fabulously, funny. Can I get it in, er, uh, book form??

Love the invisible magnet holding the butt in place.

Ma Cobb, you're crazy cuckoo crackpot.

Click on my eye, or else you die. Mwa ha ha ha

I agree. A little humor thrown in with the scary stuff makes it easier for kids to enjoy. Me too. I'm easily freaked out by horror.

I've never been one for scary stories, but that's just me! I get scared VERY easily. I still have a problem with the dark (maybe I shouldn't be admitting that). :)

Funny Lynn! Reading scary has never been a problem for me, but I do not like horror movies, not one little bit. They give me nightmares.

"you're crazy cuckoo crackpot" That's a quote from above and very alliterative. Alliterative is always alluring. Big eyes in the middle of a head . . . not so much.

Laughing here. Thanks.
