Brown Spikes Hiccups: a story by Louis

My clever little story teller

Two friends, Brown Spike and Ghost of Fame, try to cure a case of the hiccups. Follow our story including sound effects from the brilliant Storytime Sounds app from Not on the High Street.

Louis is seven, and thought up the story himself. I just wrote it down because he claimed to have tired hands from writing at school – cheeky little monkey!

I hope Louis is as proud of himself as I am of him.

Brown Spike has a terrible case of hiccups, so his good friend Ghost of Fame comes along to try and help. Will they succeed, or will Brown Spike be stuck with hiccups forever?


Louis entered this story into a competition with Entrants aged between 3 and 10 were challenged to read a story to camera using the Storytime Sounds app.

We had a ball writing and recording this, and I really enjoyed spending such great quality time with Louis.

Oh, and did I mention that HE WON!

His prize was a £100 voucher for their site, which he is itching to spend. I’ll be sure to report back with what he chose to spend his prize on!
