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.
