The Hungry Hole
By Dawn Phillips
Word Count 100

See the hole. Watch Amy feed the hole in the wall.
Amy feeds the hole ONE BLUE berry.
The hole is still hungry.
Amy feeds the hole TWO BROWN chocolate chip cookies.
The hole is still hungry.
Amy feeds the hole THREE RED apple slices.
The hole is still hungry.
Amy feeds the hole FOUR ORANGE carrots.
The hole is still hungry.
Amy feeds the hole FIVE GREEN grapes.
The hole is not hungry.
Watch Amy crawl out the hole in the door.
See the squirrels. They're eating her lunch.
Amy is still hungry.

Hi Dawn,
It took me a second read to "get it" but I did and it is funny. I had pictures in my mind about it

Great numbers and colors concept story! I imagined a little tyke sharing his or her finger foods with the critters. The fun part was imagining what the critters could possibly be.

Thank you for sharing it!

Hey, Dawn,

Since you're an illustrator, why not illustrate this story to really showcase your talents and abilities? Wow! Now THAT would be fantastic and really, really impressive!

Love the added twist to the end from last week. Are you going to illustrate it?
