Firesmith succeeds in creating an entertaining and imaginative narrative that brings a fresh perspective to the Halloween candy dilemma.

“Engrossing short story about a young boy who always seems to lose his sweets/candies/lollies on Halloween night to the cookie monster. The language is well pitched to the younger age group, who will find the colour pictures entertaining too.”
