Illustrated in black-and-white. Now back in print is the stunning
contemporary classic by American literary treasure Ray Bradbury, author of
"Fahrenheit 451" and "The Martian Chronicles." Meet the mysterious
Mr. Moonshroud, who leads eight boys on a journey back through the centuries to
discover the real meaning of Halloween. Prose of exquisite beauty will send
shivers of delight--and terror--through readers, who will want to take this
trip over and over again, long after the last jack-o'-lantern has gone dark.

Didn't get on with this at all, although it's short I gave up less than a quarter of the way through, as I didn't like the writing style and found it lacking in atmosphere. No rating. Read full review
