Hooray! It’s time for Susanna’s Valentines contest. This week I am posting a day early for Monday and Wednesday posts to fit with Valentine’s Day. What a fun time! I can’t wait to read them all. Have a great Valentine’s week everyone.
Introducing Milo the Belgian cat
Milo had travelled from Belgium. He purred and preened and scowled visiting with aunties who dined on scones and raspberry jam. Terribly bored, Milo sneaked away to the hedgerows of the Engish countryside. She didn’t know it was Valentine’s Day. And she didn’t know Hippos munched on daisies and chewed on grass.
“Hello cat! What are you doing here?”
Milo almost choked on a fur ball, “My name is Milo, I am from Belgium.”
“And my name is Hilda. Nice to meet you Milo.”
“Don’t hippos have to be in water?” asked Milo.
“Yes, I suppose they do. Let’s go and find some!”
So Hilda and Milo ambled up to a nearby stream. Milo climbed on Hilda’s back as she attempted to bathe.
“How refreshing!” said Hilda.
“Yes, quite,” said Milo.
“Happy Valentine’s Day Milo!”
“Happy Valentine’s Day Hilda!”

I had hippos on the brain after reading the middle grade book, Belly Up by Stuart Gibbs. It is SO funny. You can read a review on it on Vicki’s blog. Happy Valentine’s! (Psst! It’s my Valentine’s surprise contest on Tuesday too
