Halloween Ride by Elaine Kaye

Today I'm handing my blog over to Elaine Kaye, who has a new book out in time for Halloween. Welcome, Elaine!

When I was little, my favorite part of Halloween was the moment my parents brought down the Halloween boxes full of play clothes. We would dress up for days and days before Halloween, trying to decide what we would be. My favorite outfit was a cowgirl. Back then, we used pillowcases to collect candy. Or I would decorate a brown paper bag.

After I had a family of my own, I was able to really get into the Halloween spirit. I went all-out with decorating the house. The best d├ęcor I did was life-sized ghosts, holding hands in a circle around the palm tree in our front yard. They were made out of white sheets and shovels in the ground, and their hands were tied to make it look as though they were really holding hands. Once, I even encased our porch in fake spider webbing. It looked so real.

While my kids were growing up, I would go trick-or-treating with them dressed as a witch. Every year, I would bring out the witch costume, which consisted of a black dress; a cape; a plastic witch’s hat; and long, fake black hair with white streaks. I loved to dress up as the witch. He-he-he. So, there’s no wonder that there’s a witch in Halloween Ride!

SHARE: Some of your Halloween memories.


BLURB: One Halloween night, Gregory and his teddy bear Sammy go trick-or-treating, hoping for lots and lots of candy. But Sammy is scared of everything and is constantly asking, “What’s that?” Gregory gets annoyed until one of those things turns out to be a flying broomstick. And this broom wants them to go for a ride. Where will it take them?
