STARRED REVIEW "This delightful picture book is a must-have for elementary libraries."--School Library Journal starred review
An Irish immigrant moves to America, bringing along a now-beloved Halloween tradition.
When Lila and her family leave Ireland for the United States, Lila misses many things, but especially Halloween. Each year, she and her siblings look forward to tricking a sly spirit named Jack by carving turnips into jack-o'-lanterns and walking the streets of their small town in ghostly costumes.
