Or Ray Bradbury's classic The Halloween Tree. Eight boys set out on a Halloween night and are led into the depths of the past by a tall, mysterious character named Moundshroud. Bradbury's lyrical prose whooshes along with the pell-mell rhythms of children running at night, screaming and laughing, and the reader is carried along by its sheer exuberance. I wanted something spooky, but not persay terrifying.

Yet another great story from the master of modern storytelling. Bradbury’s longful writing of adolescent boyhood stirs memories in all men who read them in later years. They harken back to endless summers and the long nights of autumn that ever young lad lived for. This book, though simple in its delivery stirs memories of times when being a mischievous boy was not such a bad thing and when monsters still lurked in the shadows despite what your parents told you. It’s an artful history lesson in the origins of Halloween, a frequently taken for granted and misunderstood holiday in 21st century America. Coming from someone who sadly hasn’t had the pleasure of having trick or treaters haunting my doorstep for several years now, I find this story refreshing and nostalgic. Would that we all could go back to our childhood and experience just one more magical and spooky All Hallows’ eve...
I came upon the Halloween Tree while searching for a good book to put me in the holiday spirit. I wanted something spooky, but not persay terrifying. I am happy to say this book delivered that very nicely indeed.

Ray Bradbury spins the tale of a group of friends looking for the ultimate halloween scare. Trick or treating simply is not good enough and so they sneak out a haunted house. When they arrive however it os not unoccupied and they are taken on a journey through history by Mr. Mounshoud to learn about different cultures representations of halloween. They race through Egypt, Rome, France, Mexico and other wonderful places trying to save their frind Pipkin while learning how the different countries celebrate and honor their loved ones who have passed on.

I am always fond of Ray Bradbury books, but I have to go with four stars because sometimes his writing style looses me. I will be reading along and suddenly feel like the subject matter changed without a clear path as to how we got here or where we are now. I recommend this book for anyone looking for some light educational reading on a very interesting subject.
So glad I remembered this book for Halloween this year. I originally read this when I was in 6th grade. My memories of it were sketchy at best - mostly images and names. It didn't take long to see why the images were so vivid given that the chapters were adorned with some of the most vivid pen and ink pictures, 3 of which have been etched in my brain at Halloween memories all my life.

While Bradbury is known for his work in "science fiction" The Halloween Tree shows he is just a storyteller regardless of the genre you put him in. Bradbury fans will feel themselves transported back to Green Town, Illinois, though it is not ever called out.The wind, the ravine, the small town atmosphere. And on this night, a much deeper magical power comes out.

It is a vivid and amazing story worthy of reading to get you in the mood for October.
The Halloween Tree is one of the most genuinely delightful books I have read in a long time. I’ve been a fan of Bradbury for some time, and he’s well known for his prolific contributions to American literature as well as his innovative writing style. The Halloween tree offers up the best of Bradbury, from his gleeful menage of metaphors and onamonapia to his strong thematic sense, in a slim little book suitable for readers age “11 and up”.
On Halloween night in the American heartland, eight young boys gather for a evening of costumed carousing. Their revels lead them to the creaky gothic manor of the eccentric and ancient Mr. Moundshroud, who reveals to them the enormous Halloween tree, bedecked with thousands of flame-mouthed jack-o-lanterns. When something dark arises out of the shadows to snag the most beloved of the gang, Pipkin, Moundshroud leads the boys on a merry journey through Halloweens past in the hopes of finding Pipkin and rescuing him.
The book thrusts its reader into ancient Egypt, the old Britain of the Druids, Notre Dame herself, and the glowing graveyards of Mexico at breakneck speed. The narrative is immersive, and full of the spiced scents and sweet tastes of a hundred Halloweens. As far as the spooky factor goes, the book is more of an eerie adventure than anything resembling horror, so even the most scare-adverse readers can settle in to enjoy it. The illustrations by Gris Grimly (cover art featured above) set the perfect mood and embody the freedom of movement in the writing style. I would have enjoyed a little girl or two getting in on the adventure, and indeed this book contains not a single female character, but since The Halloween Tree was published in 1972, I’m willing to to chalk that up to a product of it’s time.
Though the story is simple and the page-count a modest 145, the book explores the history of Halloween, the indissoluble bonds of childhood friendship, and the way humans both ancient and modern have dealt with the passing of light into darkness, and life into death. You’ve heard of the true meaning of Christmas; it wouldn’t be unfair to say The Halloween Tree serves up the true meaning of Halloween in all is dark, gleeful glory.
