The Witch of Halloween House
Jeff DeGordickThere's an old house up on a hill in the woods that the kids call "Halloween House". They accused the mysterious old woman who lived there of being a witch until the rumors got out of hand and the panicked townspeople burned her house down with her in it one Halloween. She only said one thing before she died: "A curse on all of you!"
Now, three years later, the spooky holiday approaches again, and Carmen is left in charge of taking her little brother trick-or-treating.
But strange things begin happening around the small town.
Children are going missing one by one, and the only clue to their disappearance is a gingerbread man left on their windowsill. Now Carmen has to protect her brother so that he doesn't become the next victim as the townspeople descend into insanity all around them. Riddled with fear, they have no one to pin the kidnappings and strange occurrences on.
Because the witch is already dead...
