A boy walks home alone through the woods after an evening of trick-or-treating. His stroll turns into a frenzied dash as his imagination runs wild. The whipping wind becomes a voice that shrieks for him to not look back. His mind sees skeletons, a head, a shadow and creatures formed by clouds, branches and leaves. Finally, he arrives home safe and sound or is he? Illustrations of gloomy scenes fit rhyming words of this picture book. If you are interested in escalating child size fright then a return to safety and humor, this is a book to read. Happy Halloween!
