A Halloween Carol by Sean M. Hogan
A CHRISTMAS CAROL WITH A HALLOWEEN TWIST!!! An electrifyingly creepy and hilarious tale guaranteed to haunt and delight young readers for many spooky seasons to come!
Fourteen-year-old Zach Hall begins the Halloween holiday with his patented miserly contempt. Even the sudden appearance of a zombie named Kevin and a little witch named Alice, his new friendly neighbors, can’t break him from his funk. That is, until Zach meets a magical scarecrow and makes his wish on the jack-o’-lantern.
Now the three great Timeless Spirits of All Hallows’ Eve—a smooth talking devil, a witch with crocodile eyes, and a ghastly masked phantom—will take him on a soul-searching adventure through time and space, past and future. A journey that will reveal hard truths the young scrooge-in-training is reluctant to face.
To save the holiday he despises most, Zach must open his heart to undo years of bitter stubbornness and discover the loophole to his ill-made wish on the jack-o’-lantern. Or else, an eight-foot-tall slime monster named Bobby will swallow his new friends and family whole.
