“…a whimsical tale that cleverly addresses the age-old predicament of Halloween candy disappearing mysteriously. The narrative unfolds with a delightful mix of humor and parental wisdom, showcasing Firesmith’s knack for engaging storytelling.

Firesmith succeeds in creating an entertaining and imaginative narrative that brings a fresh perspective to the Halloween candy dilemma. Jimmy and the Halloween Candy Monster is a delightful read for families, offering a playful solution to a familiar childhood conundrum.” – Original Review

Kaye Nutman

“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.”
