2. “The Halloween Tree” by Ray Bradbury

As someone who loves reading and even talks about it on my “Selected Reads” blog, I have to include a book, right? This classic is a must-read for any Halloween lover.
In “The Halloween Tree,” Carapace Clavicle Moundshroud serves as a guide for eight young trick-or-treaters in a quest to find their missing friend, Pip. Their journey is a whirlwind tour through history and various cultures’ takes on death and the afterlife—from the ancient pyramids of Egypt to the iconic Notre-Dame Cathedral in Paris, and finally to the Day of the Dead celebrations in Mexico. As they travel through time and space, the friends confront the enigma of death and grapple with the urgency of rescuing Pip before he meets an irreversible fate. This atmospheric tale blends fantasy, history, and a dash of educational insight, making it a captivating read for both kids and adults.
