"A fast-moving, eerie...tale set on Halloween night. Eight costumed boys running to meet their friend Pipkin at the haunted house outside town encounter instead the huge and cadaverous Mr. Moundshroud. As Pipkin scrambles to join them, he is swept away by a dark Something, and Moundshroud leads the boys on the tail of a kite through time and space to search the past for their friend and the meaning of Halloween. After witnessing a funeral procession in ancient Egypt, cavemen discovering fire, Druid rites, the persecution of witches in the Dark Ages, and the gargoyles of Notre Dame, they catch up with the elusive Pipkin in the catacombs of Mexico, where each boy gives one year from the end of his life to save Pipkin's. Enhanced by appropriately haunting black-and-white drawings."--Booklist

3.0 The Halloween Tree
An eerie tale of Halloween in which a group of kids are guided (or is it lured?) by the sinister Mr. Moundshroud on a journey through time. I'm not sure what was creepier, the descriptions of Mr. Moundshroud or the fact that the children followed him with little hesitation. However, once the journ...

5.0 The Halloween Tree Review
"It was like sweet and and sour sauce in book form. Not too sweet and not too sour." That's a direct quote from my nine-year-old daughter. I've read this book every year since I was seven years old. It was, as far as I can remember, my first experience with "horror" in literature, even if it's ...

It just wasn't what I thought it was going to be. However, I did still like it, especially the parts where th...
