Book Description

For Halloween 1959, Mike and Timmy try to trick their cousins, Alice and Rose. The trick is on them when a homeless man and their nine-year-old neighbor team up to give them a Halloween scare that they will never forget.

My Review

It’s 1959, and 11-year-olds Mike and Timmy decide to convert an old mansion into a haunted house to scare their cousins, Rose and Alice. Their plan is quickly on its way as they bribe a friend to participate in the Halloween trick. When the five children arrive at the abandoned mansion, things don’t go as planned. It looks like someone has something else in mind for the young group.

I think this is an entertaining Halloween story for young children. It’s not scary, but rather suspenseful as the Halloween tricks unfold. Tables are turned on trickster's Mike and Timmy as they become the ones running and screaming on Halloween night. While someone else is getting the last laugh, the children experience a night they’ll never forget.
