THE 5 LITTLE GHOSTS STORY 

Once upon a time, there lived 5 little ghosts. As everyone knows, ghosts are white and are supposed to stay white. They can only eat and drink white things such as cottage cheese, vanilla ice cream, milk, string cheese, and cauliflower.

One day when Mama ghost went to the refrigerator, there was no cottage cheese and no milk. So she had to go to the grocery store to get some more. Before she left she said, “No matter how hungry you get, do not eat anything or something dreadful will happen.” The ghosts had visitors and so they had some leftovers in their fridge, but no cottage cheese or milk.

The first ghost became so thirsty and he looked in the refrigerator and saw a little glass of grape juice and thought, “just one teeny sip wouldn’t hurt.” So he took one teeny sip of grape juice and guess what happened? He turned purple!

The other ghosts looked at him and said “Mama told us that something dreadful would happen and she was right.” The little ghost did not want his Mama to see him all purple so he ran upstairs and hid in the toy box.

The second ghost became so hungry and he looked in the refrigerator and saw some blueberries and thought, “just a few won’t hurt.” So he ate a few blueberries and what do you think happened? He turned blue!

The other ghosts looked at him and said “Mama told us that something dreadful would happen and she was right.” The little ghost did not want his Mama to see him all blue so he ran upstairs and hid in the closet.

The third ghost became so hungry and he looked in the refrigerator and saw a bowl of spinach and thought, “just one teeny bite wouldn’t hurt.” So he took one teeny bite of spinach and what do you suppose happened? He turned green!

The other ghosts looked at him and said “Mama told us that something dreadful would happen and she was right.” The little ghost did not want his Mama to see him all green so he ran upstairs and hid under the bed.

The fourth ghost became so hungry and he looked in the refrigerator and saw a bowl of strawberries and thought, “just a few won’t hurt.” So he took a few bites of a strawberry and what do think happened? He turned pink!

The other ghosts looked at him and said “Mama told us that something dreadful would happen and she was right.” The little ghost did not want his Mama to see him all pink so he ran upstairs and hid behind the door.

The fifth ghost said, “I’m so hungry but I will not do what my brothers did. I’ll look in the freezer and see if there is just maybe a little vanilla ice cream left.” When he looked in the freezer there was some ice cream and it was almost vanilla – it was white with little brown pieces of chocolate in it. So the ghost said, “This shouldn’t hurt me – those pieces of chocolate are so tiny.” So he ate one spoonful and became a chocolate chip ghost! He certainly didn’t want his Mama to see him spotted so he ran upstairs and hid in the bathtub.

When Mama ghost returned, she knew something was wrong when she didn’t see her children, so she started looking for the little ghosts. She found the first (purple) one upstairs in the toy box, and a 2nd (orange) one in the closet, and the 3rd (green) one under the bed, the 4th (pink) one behind the door and the 5th and last (chocolate chip) one in the bathtub. When she found all of them, she said, “Little ghosts, I told you that something dreadful would happen and it did.” Whatever can we do to get you white again for Halloween?

She called the ghost doctor and this is what he told her to do. Keep all the little ghosts in bed for five days and give them nothing but cauliflower and milk and they should be ready for Halloween. So that is what she did and by Halloween night, the five little ghosts were all white again to go out haunting and spooking and shouting “BOO!” And they never ate something they shouldn’t again.
