Halloweensie 2017: The Evil Dr. Gerbil and the Halloween Heist

Hi All.  I’m so excited! Another year has passed, and once again it is time for Susanna Leonard Hill’s annual Halloweensie writing contest. You can find all the rules and regulations here.  If writing isn’t your thing, then please make sure to head here and read all the fabulous stories.  I am always blown away by all the wonderful, and creative entries.  It is amazing what writers can do with only 100 words. I have decided to revive my lovable (or not so lovable) Evil Dr. Gerbil for this Halloween special.  In case you don’t remember, The Evil Dr. Gerbil hasn’t been seen since his prison escape last Christmas. I hope you enjoy my entry.

The Evil Dr. Gerbil and the Halloween Heist

FOX NEWS ALERT:  Halloween Heist!

Halloween trick-or-treaters reported being held up for their candy corn cache last night. One group of children described the shadow of a rodent creeping up from behind demanding all of their candy corn.

Inspector Wallaby believes The Evil Dr. Gerbil, and his on-again, off-again girlfriend Patty Partridge, who is known to have a monstrous sweet tooth, are responsible.

Bits of feathers, and rodent droppings were found at the scene and have been sent to the DNA lab for further testing. Wonder Weasel is flying in to assist.

Stay tuned to Fox News for further updates…

  1. Jean, so glad you hopped on board for Susanna’s Halloweensie Contest. I was excited to read on in the adventures of the Evil Dr. Gerbil…I think you’ve got something here…I know my grandson would love a whole series like this!!!! Well done!


  2. What an unusual format – nice job. I agree that this would make a wonderful book(s). I hope you continue writing about Evil Dr Gerbil. Lover your images, too. Especially “the wonder weasel.” Best of Luck! 🙂


  3. Ooh! Love the return of the evil Dr. Gerbil! You and Julie Abery should get a special proze for series work 🙂 Fun news alert style and plenty of mystery! I have a feeling that the evil Dr. Gerbil and Patty Partridge DID escape from prison and will show up in the Holiday Contest! 🙂 Thanks so much for joining in the fun, Jean!
