Happy Halloween!





It's Halloween

It's Halloween! It's Halloween!
The moon is full and bright
And we shall see what can't be seen
On any other night.

Skeletons and ghosts and ghouls,
Grinning goblins fighting duels,
Werewolves rising from their tombs,
Witches on their magic brooms.

In masks and gowns
We haunt the street
And knock on doors
For trick or treat.

Tonight we are
The king and queen,
For oh tonight
It's Halloween!

Prelutsky -- I was lucky enough to host him at the bookstore I managed. He's great.

Happy Halloween to you!

Thanks Lisa! Prelutsky has such a knack for taking kids to the best places. Not bad for adults, either!
