Slide 11

The Halloween Tree by Ray Bradbury


Recommended age: 10 and up

Older elementary-school readers will love this eerie and enthralling work of fiction. A group of eight boys in Halloween costumes is carried away on the tail of a kite. Accompanied by the creepy but wise Mr. Moundshroud, they take a trip through space and time to see Egypt's mummies, the Celtic lord of the dead, the Mexican celebration of the Day of the Dead, and other gothic rituals. Through their adventure they witness a timeline of morbid folklore and Halloween history. Black-and-white illustrations help hook readers into the tale.
