The Ghost-Eye Tree
One dark and windy autumn night when the sun has long gone down, a young boy and his older sister are sent to the end of town to get a bucket of milk. As they walk down the lonely road, bathed in eerie moonlight, all the boy can think about is the ghost-eye tree.
I dreaded to go...
I dreaded the tree....
Why does Mama always choose me
When the night is so dark
And the mind runs free?
What will happen when they come to the tree? Can they run past it or will it reach out and grab them?
Any child who has been frightened of the dark will enjoy this scary book, which is meant to be read aloud. Bill Martin, Jr., and John Archambault developed the story as a reader's theater piece, which they have performed in schools across the country. Now, with Ted Rand's stunning illustrations, the ghost-eye tree comes to life. Watch out!

Ghost Eye TreeUser Review - Uncle George - Borders
Excellent book. The picture graphics are great and everyone can relate to the story. Though it is written for young children, anyone K - 12 would enjoy it being read to. I know, as I have done so. For older students it lends itself well to a prewriting / story activity around Halloween. Read full review
