'The Baddest Suspenseful Hororr'

This book to me was a very very interesting, spine tingling hororr and I enjoyed every bit of it!! This would be a great book to sit down and really get your eyes glued to the pages. It is absolutely a great book!!!!

yes, this is a classic. I don't understand why but it is. What lazy writting. poor character devlopement, muddied use of discrptions, and a rushed use of senery and enviroment, I should have given this title one star. What saved it was indeed its truth to the feel and history of halloweed, regardless of how canceeled those qualities are due to the mentioned above flaws. I keep it on my shelve only becuase it is an instantly recognised classic. My advice is buy it, dont buy it, but if you do pick up the paperback so you wont be set back much.

    I Also Recommend:

    Ray Bradbury for kids.

    I love Ray Bradbury's writing. The Halloween Tree is geared toward kids, with a 4.7 reading level, but I still enjoyed it, and it seemed appropriate for early autumn. The art and illustrations complement the writing very well. I thought Bradbury used too many similes in this one, but I'm sure that was his attempt to show the young readers his vivid details, and he could've developed some of the characters better than he did. Even so, he does a nice job of explaining the history and origins of All Hallow's Eve within the context of his imaginative conflict and plot, and he always entertains me with his unique voice and writing style.
