Publisher's Summary

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.
Ray Bradbury’s evocative prose and imagery 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.

Amazing story, excellent narration!

I love Ray Brabury's lyrical style. And this story doesn't disappoint. This story is also edifying! I think it might even be suitable for children, especially if they like the creepy and scary. But it is not gruesome or very disturbing after all. The narrator is top notch. He truly sounded like a different person doing the speaking parts! One gripe. Editing could've been tighter. A few times there was a loooong gap between a speech and "Tom said" or something similar. It was a little jolting.
