The Halloween Tree by Ray Bradbury

This is a story about Halloween’s origins. There is a boy named Joe Pipkin who is traveling through time accidentally. His friends follow him through time by means of a magical man named Mr. Moundshroud. At the end of the night, Joe gets in serious trouble and in real life is sent to the hospital. Meanwhile, back in time, he is killed by a lightning bolt. His friends find out that to stop him from dying in the real world they must pay a price. But will they give it? I really like this book.♣
