A fun read with a bit of history.

The Halloween Tree - Ray Bradbury

 

8 boys learn a bit about the history of their favorite holiday, Halloween, while on a quest to save their friend Pipkin.

 

The giant tree festooned with jack 'o lanterns made me think of the huge walnut I have in the front yard.

Very creepy looking when it loses it's leaves.

 

If you haven't filled your Halloween square yet this one is perfect.
