Read an Excerpt

Dear Mr. Pumpkin,

It’s almost the end of the month of October. Do you know what happens on October 31 each year? It’s Halloween. And that’s the time when you get very popular. How does it feel to be so special on that day?

It’s a strange holiday, don’t you think? Kids dress up in all sorts of costumes of animals, cartoon characters, superheroes, and princesses, just to name a few. Sometimes, though, the costumes can be scary, such as ghosts or witches or skeletons.

After dressing up in costumes, we go “trick-or-treating.” That means we walk around and grown-ups are supposed to give us a lot of candy. If they don’t, we play a trick on them. People decorate their homes and yards with black cats, bats, witches, and other creepy-looking things. And that’s where you come in—a carved pumpkin. . .

Do you know how the celebration of Halloween started?

Well, I would like to tell you all about it.

A long, long time ago, there was a group of people called the Celtics. They lived in countries such as Ireland, Wales, Scotland, and England. Do you know where those countries are, Mr. Pumpkin? They are located just west of the continent of Europe. . .
