I’m procrastinating! I need to think of a scary creature that lives next door to my main character in my Marty Scott chapter book series and I can’t. I can’t move the story forward until I’ve worked out what it is. It needs to make a scary noise and look pretty terrifying, but turn out to be friendly in the end. At the moment it makes a low growl, but doesn’t sound like a dog. In fact to the protagonist (a 7 year old boy) it sounds like a crocodile would sound if crocodiles could growl. Any thoughts anyone?
