"A fast-moving, eerie...tale set on Halloween night. Eight costumed boys running to meet their friend Pipkin at the haunted house outside town encounter instead the huge and cadaverous Mr. Moundshroud. As Pipkin scrambles to join them, he is swept away by a dark Something, and Moundshroud leads the boys on the tail of a kite through time and space to search the past for their friend and the meaning of Halloween. After witnessing a funeral procession in ancient Egypt, cavemen discovering fire, Druid rites, the persecution of witches in the Dark Ages, and the gargoyles of Notre Dame, they catch up with the elusive Pipkin in the catacombs of Mexico, where each boy gives one year from the end of his life to save Pipkin's. Enhanced by appropriately haunting black-and-white drawings."--Booklist

Mehr über den Autor

Ray Bradbury gehört zu den großen Science-Fiction-Autoren Amerikas. Geboren 1920 in Waukegan, Illinois, begann Bradbury unmittelbar nach der Highschool mit dem Schreiben fantastischer Geschichten. Seinen Lebensunterhalt verdiente er sich anfangs noch als Zeitungsverkäufer, bald aber konnte er seine Erzählungen in diversen Zeitschriften veröffentlichen. 1953 wurde Bradbury mit seinem Roman "Fahrenheit 451" schlagartig weltberühmt, nicht zuletzt auch dank der Verfilmung durch François Truffaut. Mehr als 600 Geschichten und über 30 Bücher hat der Vater von vier Töchtern seither publiziert. Aber auch außerhalb der Literatur ist Bradbury immer wieder gefragt: U. a. engagierte er sich als Experte für das Fantastische bei Disneyland Paris. Heute lebt Bradbury in Los Angeles.


Somewhere inside Ray Bradbury's head is a place where it's always golden autumn, in 1920s midwest America, and every night is Halloween. He has a gift for evoking childhood thrills where joy and terror come heart-stoppingly close. Here eight kids dressed as horrors for Halloween go hunting darkness and find it:
... one hundred million tons of night all crammed in that huge dark pit, that dank cellar, that deliciously frightening ravine.
Awaiting them is the comic-sinister trickster Moundshroud, who whirls the boys on a tour through time that shows them the roots of Halloween--cavemen trembling from the dark, Egyptians whose lives revolved around death, Druids appeasing their terrible gods, and so on to the grim carnival of Mexico's Day of the Dead. It's full of poetic flashes, as when "all the old beasts, all the old tales, all the old nightmares, all the unused demons-put- by" are summoned from every corner of Europe to become gargoyles in the newly-built Notre Dame Cathedral.

Bradbury's theme of celebrating life by celebrating death is underlined by fleeting appearances of the gang's missing ninth boy, the one we soon realise is gravely ill and may not last the night. But Moundshroud, who is more than he seems, offers a deal ... The Halloween Tree is written as though for children, with lashings of exclamation marks--but, just as in a fairground, adults too can let their hair down and enjoy the wild roller- coaster ride. --David Langford -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.


"If you want to know what Halloween is, or if you simply want an eerie adventure, take this mystery-history trip. You couldn't have a better guide than Ray Bradbury."--Boston Globe -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Taschenbuch .

5.0 von 5 Sternen A spiced cider tradition 15. Juli 2000
Von Ein Kunde
Make no mistake- this is not a children's book. Nor is it an adult book. Rather, THE HALLOWEEN TREE is a book for everyone. The writing is simple and swift enough for a child, but complex and engaging for the adult. It's a Halloween tradition that everyone should instill on with their families... as nostalgic as spiced cider, apple bobbing or trick-or-treating on an October afternoon in the smoky pumpkin air.

This story of eight Halloween costumed lads and their journey through land and time in search of a friend is perfect for the holiday, as it not only entertains but educates as well. Whether it be Celtic customs of old or a skull shaped cookie in Mexico for Dia de Los Muertes through this tale young readers can understand that Halloween is not, nor has it always been, just celebrated with candy and masks. Bradbury allows for the overshadowing of death to linger but not suffocate (which would scare children) and so doing correlates the celebration of the harvest with the end of life. He then deftly clarifies that this celebration of the end of life reaffirms the prospect of living itself, and that there is nothing demonic in that. I would recommend this for more intermediate readers (8-12) as many of the ideas and descriptions would quite possible be too much for a child younger than that. But whether you're 8 or 80 this tale will intrigue and entertain. Nearly perfect. So wait 'til the leaves start to turn, settle down with a nice mug of hot cider by a roaring fire, and allow Mr. Bradbury to take you to The Halloween Tree.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Courtesy of Teens Read Too 28. Februar 2011
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Opening this book is like opening a present. Originally published in 1972, publisher Alfred A. Knopf has printed a new hardcover edition. The dust-jacket is beautifully illustrated, the book is of an unusual size. Everything about it says "special."

Inside, I was not disappointed. Bradbury swept me away with his opening scene:

"It was a small town by a small river and a small lake in a small northern part of a Midwest state. There wasn't so much wilderness around you couldn't see the town. But on the other hand there wasn't so much town you couldn't see and feel and touch and smell the wilderness. The town was full of trees. And dry grass and dead flowers now that autumn was here. And full of fences to walk on and sidewalks to skate on and a large ravine to tumble in and yell across. And the town was full of...


And it was the afternoon of Halloween.

And all the houses shut against a cool wind.

And the town was full of cold sunlight.

But suddenly, the day was gone.

Night came out from under each tree and spread."

This scene sets the tone for the entire book. THE HALLOWEEN TREE is as classic a Halloween story as A CHRISTMAS CAROL is for Christmas. It is about a group of boys, all friends, ages 11-12, who dress up for their annual night of Halloween mischief and go trick or treating. The boys find themselves at a particularly spooky mansion in a dark ravine, with a Marley-the-ghost door knocker and a gigantic tree covered with jack-o-lanterns. As the jack-o-lanterns light up one by one, the boys realize they are in the presence of a Halloween Tree, and that something very special is about to happen.

The resident of the house, the mysterious Mr.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A Lyrical Journey. 21. Juni 2000
Von Ein Kunde
This is not Bradbury's best book, but it shows exactly how strong Bradbury's controll of language is. What makes his language even more powerful is that every sentence, every word, is absolutely given to the story, merging with the strange and wonderous scenes that fill Bradbury's tribute to Halloween. If you like this book you'll love Something Wicked This Way Comes. (Hey parents, want to give your kids a love of reading, read to them from this book when they are young and give them copies of Something Wicked, Martian Chronicles, and Fahrenheit 451 when they are older).

5.0 von 5 Sternen Absolutely Gorgeous!!!! 18. Oktober 1999
I first tried to read this book when I was around the suggested reading age (about 12 years old). Now that I'm 18 I finally tuly appreciated this masterpiece. Never before have I seen the true essence of Halloween captured on paper so perfectly. Life and death, night and day, Autumn and Summer, courage and friendship, Halloween and all it's components are presented to the reader in fantastic imagery that will transport you back to those Halloween nights that we miss so much. The nights when you could taste the magic in the air. Bradbury is an artist and these 145 pages are his canvas. If you are a true fan of Halloween or want to become one this book is for you.
