Bee-Boo Toots is so excited about Halloween, she has asked her Mother Tilly every day since the beginning of October if it is time to make lollipops for trick-or-treating. Tilly planned to make the treats at the end of the month; Bee-Boo had other ideas and was now jumping up and down:
“Please, please, please? Can we today please?” she cried.
Tilly decided it might be a good way of keeping her daughter busy on this very wet day. Of course Bee-Boo had to try one of the Lollipops as soon as they were finished.
” Mmmm,” said Bee-Boo, “they are delicious”.
“But,” wondered Tilly, “will they still be in the cupboard when Halloween comes?”
