I gave Hudson a flannel board and some felt cut outs and asked him to use them to tell me a story. Here is the story he created:
Once upon a time a lot of animals came to a party where it was Halloween. Some bunnies brought a cake. And they had wine. They had pumpkin seeds. They went to the apple trees and ate some apples and the fish ate flowers.
