This was a fun and uirky read for Halloween Ray Bradbury has a great way of painting a myriad of images in his writing I adored the illustrations by Joseph Mugnaini When I started this book I was hooked immediately and thought this was going to be my 5 star Halloween book for the year The wind outside nested in each tree prowled the sidewalks in invisible treads like unseen cats Tom Skelton shivered Anyone could see that the wind was a special wind this night and the darkness took on a special feel because it was All Hallows Eve Everything seemed cut from soft black velvet or gold or orange velvet Smoke panted up out of a thousand chimneys like the plumes of funeral parades I had an awesome feeling of nostalgia as the story was set up and the boys dressed in their costumes and prepared themselves for a night of thrills and adventure Meeting at the haunted house on the outskirts of town the boys realize that one of their own the magnificent Pipkin is in danger In order to save him they must travel back in time with the frightfully fantastic Mr Moundshroud Here the reader journeys and learns about the history of Halloween through the ages and across the continents right along with this pack of boys I thought this was a very clever idea However it was at this point that I lost a bit of interest in the story Too much information was thrown at me too uickly and everything became a bit too chaotic I wanted to sit back and really learn a bit about each place and time but before I knew it I was rushed on to the next Well I m glad to say I have finally read this book and I am not sorry that I did it certainly provided some entertainment I just wish I could regurgitate some of what I learned about Halloween but I m afraid Mr Moundshroud s grandiose efforts were a bit lost on me Géopolitique de l'Australie year The wind outside nested in each tree prowled the sidewalks in invisible treads like unseen cats Tom Skelton shivered Anyone could see that the wind was a special wind this night and the darkness took on a special feel because it was All Hallows Eve Everything seemed cut from soft black velvet or gold or orange velvet Smoke panted up out of a thousand chimneys like the plumes of funeral parades I had an awesome feeling of nostalgia as the story was set up and the boys dressed in their costumes and prepared themselves for a night of thrills and adventure Meeting at the haunted house on the outskirts of town the boys realize that one of their own the magnificent Pipkin is in danger In order to save him they must travel back in time with the frightfully fantastic Mr Moundshroud Here the reader journeys and learns about the history of Halloween through the ages and across the continents right along with this pack of boys I thought this was a very clever idea However it was at this point that I lost a bit of interest in the story Too much information was thrown at me too uickly and everything became a bit too chaotic I wanted to sit back and really learn a bit about each place and time but before I knew it I was rushed on to the next Well I m glad to say I have finally read this book and I am not sorry that I did it certainly provided some entertainment I just wish I could regurgitate some of what I learned about Halloween but I m afraid Mr Moundshroud s grandiose efforts were a bit lost on me

This book and I have a history and one which I wasn t even aware of until I have actually read it Years and years ago I saw an opening snippet of a Halloween movie on Cartoon Network it was October and they had Halloween themed cartoons running all day long from the Addams Family to special episodes of Scooby Doobut this one caught my attention it was a full length animation and the opening scene featured a bird s eye view on a small town where dusk had just began to fall and the skies were fiery red For some reason I didn t get to watch the rest of it and for years remembered just this image of burning red sky and a sense of autumnal mystery I couldn t find the title of this film as all this happened when the internet was still in its infancy But this image had never completely left my mind and after reading this book something in the back of my head urged me to see if it was ever adapted for the screen and lo and behold I learned that in 1993 Hanna Barbera has turned it into a feature length animated film written and narrated by Bradbury himself and it was since often shown on Cartoon Network during Halloween I even saw the opening on YouTube and it matches what I remember almost to the letterCan you believe After so many years I ve finally found my long forgotten cartoon which as a boy I thought I d never see again for some reason it didn t occur to me to just look for it a year later perhaps because after October and Winter arrived Summer which at this age was like beginning to live in a completely new world I m older now but that boy is still there somewhere within me and he is very happy Special thanks go to Ziba for introducing me to this book and urging me to read it thank you The Halloween Tree is another of Ray Bradbury s ode to youth and boyhood and a true Halloween special Bradbury wrote in simple but elegant language and his words are filled with nostalgia for the earlier simpler time of youth and childhood and the sense of mystery and adventure which were all around when the days turned shorter and colder leaves fell from the trees and whispers of ghosts began to circulate Eight friends dress up in Halloween costumes there s the skeleton a mummy a witch even Mr Death himself but they re missing the group favorite and their leader Pipkin he looks unwell but has never missed a Halloween and tells them that he will meet up with them as they go on The group arrives at a mysterious Gothic mansion with a gigantic tree hung with Jack O Lanterns they discover that the house is inhabited by an eually mysterious man named Moundshroud Just then Pipkin appears but is snatched away from them by unknown forces and dragged into the dark unknown space Mr Moundshroud invites the group on a strange journey through time and across the world the only chance to save their friendThe structure is similar to Charles Dickens s A Christmas Carol where Ebenezer Scrooge is taken by various ghost to experience the Past the Present and the Yet To Come but AChristmas Carol is a story of another season and another man focused solely on Scrooge and his relationship with others The Halloween Tree while giving plenty of attention to Pipkin is focused much on Halloween and its origins from the ancient traditions of the Egyptians Greeks and Romans through the Celts and the medieval times in Britain and France to the Mexican D a de Muertos Civilizations which created these customs have long since disappeared but their tradition survived and influenced the holiday and its celebration and are all elements of this storyJoe Mugnaini illustrations are delightful and I wish there were of them Still I think that The Halloween Tree is a story which would shine when listened to as told by someone who understands autumn and Halloween and cares about both deeply and delights in telling stories to an engaged audience of young and old children It s a short novella which can be read in one sitting but paints a great tribute to the season the warmth of summer and its lush green disappeared but in their place arrived mystery and the multitude of sensations which you can t experience at any other time of the year I don t think anyone can dislike this book but I think plenty of us autumn people will end enjoying it greatly
