The harvest moon is high in the Halloween sky as Old Armadillo shuffles down his walkway setting jack-o-lanterns at the edges of the flagstones.

Old Armadillo wants Halloween, too, and he is ready to celebrate in grand style. “Laced with Spanish words, Brimner's prose creates a quietly spooky mood for this distinctive Halloween tale.” -- Publishers Weekly PUBLICATION DATE: OCTOBER 2010; grades K-2
