Trick or Treat, Alistair Gray
Children's Halloween Picture Book (4-7) | Project in development
About the Story
TRICK OR TREAT, ALISTAIR GRAY draws from the author's heritage celebrating the Celtic traditions of All Hallowtide. Similar in style and tone to Snicket or Burton, Ryan makes the dark approachable, inviting, and not-so-spooky as she mixes the folklore of ancient traditions with modern celebrations of the October holiday.
Alistair Gray loves Halloween.
When Alistair attends his school Halloween carnival, he is disappointed to see his favorite night of the year has turned more silly than scary—all treats and no tricks.
But when he wanders alone into the dark the night before Hallow’s Eve, Alistair meets a spooky new friend that teaches him the holiday is about fun and of fright…and that there’s more than one way to celebrate Halloween.
