The deal was she write a Halloween story - they send her the gear.
'Wow' I said to her after she'd finally written it all out - 'Your very first writing gig!'
'FIRST???' she exclaimed in horror.
Somehow I don't think she'll be following in my footsteps...
So here it is - as written by my budding scribe:
Lucy and the Scary Spider.
By Kaya, Age 8
Once upon a time in Callafornya there was a high school called Waferly High. Now this wasn't an ordinary school, but a monster school. And in the school there was a little girl named Lucy. She was a Dark Fairy. And she loved Waferly High. But there was one problem....she was terrified of spiders.
Her best friend was called Sam. He was a Ware-Woolf. And infact in that very school there are millions of spiders. And there's a very cheeky spider called Charlie. And evry time Lucy and Sam are hanging around Charlie comes up and frightens the life out of Lucy, evry time she sees him she screams.
Now she's getting fed up with all the screaming and fearness so she's going to stand up for herself.
Lucy had a plan. She and Sam would sneek up behind Charlie and give him a fright and see how he likes it. A week later they did their plan and it just didnt work. Charlie is just fearless. Then one day when Lucy was at her house Charlie came by to scare her but...but...gess what? She wasn't scared. It was a mirical. She finally faced her fear of spiders.
She was so happy and in fact she actcholy made friends with them. They all came around to her house and had tea and cake and they all lived happily ever after.
And if you needed proof that this was all her own work (which somehow I don't think you will...) here it is!
