The Halloween Tree

by Ray Bradbury
Release date: 1972
Type: speculative fiction
Genres: fantasy, young adult

Adventure, mystery and history are all wrapped into this eerie Halloween story about eight costumed boys who are whisked away on a kite through time and space to search for the meaning of Halloween.

It was the night of All Hallow's Eve... a night of darkness and of dreams... of moonlight peering through the cobwebs of time and velvet silence splintered by tormented cries...

And through the streets of town raced a fiendish band--shrieking, howling, pounding on doors. "Trick or Treat" screamed the skeleton, as from every house the chilren extorted candy in the traditional blackmail of Halloween.

But the last house was different. From within the black depths came Mr. Carapace Clavicle Moundshroud... a monster... a magician... a product of the night itself... who became their guide on a kite-flying, broomstick-riding trip back into the history of All Hallow's Eve...
