Not bad and you definitely got the grrr! in.
Great twist, a pesky brother was the last thing I expected as a monster.

Perfect in so many ways. I love reading poetry, but so often it isn't all that interesting. This is such a well-told story in poetic splendor.
Hope to see it as a winner.

A fun poem with a great ending! Good job.
Simply captivating in its simplicity, Well, well done. Bravo!
The flow was great, making it the sort of poem you can read aloud with ease. I could see the trees and feel her panic as she runs. Something tells me her brother is indeed going to be very sorry.
Well done, I love this.

What a fun poem! Terrific use of "grrr". I had a similar experience with my brother while in my teens, and have never let him forget it!
