I think she's mentally depressed mother.
Moreover that may be the scarecrow there which she called the king of pumpkins.

In my opinion learning English language through the story is quite useful . the biggest advantage of this website and its story is that you can have a fun and also listen up to the audio and capture the correct pronunciation and get a gist of the text and guess the meaning of  new vocabularies  from the context . it is realy works and improve our vocabulary

I like this story.because it teaches me new vocabulary according to listening .I think that learning from stories is a good way to master a foreign language.

it ws a nice one. i enjoyed as well as learnt something newww....!!!!!!!!!!!!

 Interesting story. I like the way the writer created the conversation between the kid and the cat, they had very good sense of humor. Thank you for sharing,,;)

hi every body!!
i think the story is very interesting, its a bit scary story , and i think his mother maybe a real witch and he is a real elf, now that can be true, because i guess they have a black cat that can talk so i believe that she maybe i real witch i wonder if i could have a black talking cat so i can talk with him and maybe i can consult my problems with him!!! 

it is good to hear fairy tales like that from your mummy or grandmother, grandad. children believes what you say in most positions so don't tell them bad things. Fairy tales must guide them to the right way!

Intersting , imy answers is 70% i cant wait for the next task and story
