by Ray Bradbury
Open iTunes to Buy
On a Halloween night, eight boys are led on an incredible journey into the past by the mysterious "spirit" Moundshroud. Riding a dark autumn wind from ancient Egypt to the land of the Celtic druids, from Mexico to a cathedral in Paris, they will witness the haunting beginnings of the holiday called Halloween. Featuring the evocative prose and imagery of Ray Bradbury, the fine acting of the Colonial Radio Theater players, and atmospheric music and sound effects, this story will send shivers of delight (and spine-chilling terror) through listeners young and old, long after the last candle has died in your jack-o'-lantern.
as a child i loved this movie which scared me so badly i've read the book but i can't wait to hear the book. i only wish iTunes carried the movie as well.
The Begining of Exploration
This book was the first book I read cover to cover in one night. It is the begining of all wisdom of how humanity has addressed the unknown. It is also the best of Bradbury's storytelling. It grips you and wisks you to far lands and times in the dimist past of humanity. It is a must for Haloween. It is a must for all those who are curious about all the traditions and human expression. There is none better.
The Halloween Tree
itunes really needs to get the movie to this book, it is very worth reading and the movie would be good too, especially as halloween gets closer!
