The Halloween Tree & A New Look
Wendy at THE HALLOWEEN TREE had a fabulous give-away and I was one of the lucky winners of the spooktacular book The Halloween Tree by Ray Bradbury. Wendy loves this book so much that her blog is titled after the book. She was originally giving away one book but couldn't, so she ordered more books and had some extra winners. I was one of the extras. Boy am I glad she did that because i absolutely love this book. The illustrations by Joseph Mugnaini are to die for. And the story, a wicked ride through the past as eight boys learn the real meaning of Halloween. They must all make a sacrifice to save their friend Pip. Will they make that sacrifice? Will they save their dear friend? You'll have to read The Halloween Tree to find out.
Along with the book were some other surprises. A lovely journal with a beautiful blackbird and pumpkins. A list tablet of the same design and some Halloween pencils. And the awesome witch puzzle from The Witch City, Salem, MA.
Thank you Wendy for the fab prizes. You're awesome!!!
As some of you have noticed, Out of the Shadows has a new look. Like me, my blog likes to try on new styles from time to time. I hope you will enjoy this new look. Let me know you likes and dislikes about it and be sure to visit Wendy at The Halloween Tree.
