"Trick or Schkleesch!"
A Halloween fable by Alda Hofferber

A young bat ("Norbert Albert Hubert, 'Berts
to my buds', Bat") must brave the dying light
of an autumn sunset in order to get to the
Meeting Point.
Therein begins a grand adventure
as he avoids the topiary maze monsters to reach
the old woman at the haunted mansion. What he
finds there will change him forever.
Perhaps it would be best to leave the old woman
undisturbed--no matter how delicious her Halloween
cookies smell--if the supernatural entity who sent
him on this quest would let him...

This attractive 8.5 by 5.5" book has 140 pages,
27 color illustrations by Alora and is printed on high quality paper
with laminated covers and wire binding.

The story of TRICK OR SCHKLEESCH!, though taking place on
Halloween, is a fable for all seasons and readers of all ages.
Everyone will enjoy its lightness and humor, even while
being slightly chilled at some of its scary moments.
At times sad and nostalgic, it may bring tears of remembrance
or joy to some people's eyes when they learn, along with
Berts, some of Life's most important lessons.

The price of $13.50 includes shipping and handling.
