Jack O. Lantern

by Lynn Rogalsky

Jack O. Lantern loved Halloween. Jack collected spooky creatures to love.

He found Monster and gave it a monstrous hug.

Jack’s black cat, Shadow, brought home a new friend.

A crow Jack named Candy Corn, because the bird squawked, “Corn, corn!”

The four went trick-or-treating. Jack loved getting candy and seeing all the pumpkins.

At one house a neighbor asked Jack what the O in his name meant.

“Orange. Orange-you-glad we’re here?” Jack’s smile lit up the whole front porch.

Everyone handed them all the candy. Jack wondered why.

“You’re frightful—you have seeds stuck between your teeth!” said Monster.
