That was an interesting story. With an assortment of monsters, I thought their night would never end. They had only set out to go trick-or-treating but the Halloween pumpkin tree provided them a magical experience.
It was Halloween night and as they gathered, they noticed that Pipkin was not amongst them. They needed Pipkin, for he was like their ringleader. They waited and when he finally arrived, Pipkin looked sick. He tells the rest of the group to head out and he will join up with them in a bit.
The group heads out and they arrive at a mansion where there is a huge tree nearby. Hanging from this tree are jack-o-lanterns that begin to glow, randomly. This excites the group. At the door, a man tells them he has no treats, but he has a trick and the door shuts. Bewildered, the boys start to walk away when the man jumps out at them from beside the glowing tree. This begins their journey with Mr. Moundshroud, as they track down Pipkin.
I didn’t feel that this novel was frightening but it was an entertaining and adventurous tale. It had Halloween characters in it and it talked about death, so you should know your audience before sharing this novel with anyone.
