Description


Trick or treat? Celebrate Halloween is definitely a real treat. Vivid images and Deborah Heiligman's lively, inviting text illuminate the spookiest night of the year. The book lets readers explore Halloween celebrations around the globe as it uncovers the rich history of this holiday, the creepy creatures that come to life in the night, and the origins of such customs as dressing up in costume, carving jack-o'-lanterns, and trick-or-treating. Readers will witness Halloween bonfires in Ireland-believed to be the birthplace of the holiday-Halloween parades in Japan, a costumed pooch in the U.S., and a pumpkin patch by the Eiffel Tower in Paris. Halloween folklore, food, games, costumes, and traditions all combine in a most bewitching brew.
