Free Book Friday: Halloween Treat #3


We’re having a PARTY!

Saturday night! Hot dogs, chips, and graveyard cake! Candy and games! Wish you could all come play Pass-the-Pumpkin, Pumpkin Relay, and Mummy Wrap with the fifth graders! But!!!! You CAN play Candy Corn Count!

In the photo above, how many candy corns are in this jar? Persian-the-cat is counting, so hurry! He might get the right answer first!

Make up to three guesses (each guess must be in a separate comment entry to count). Winner announced Monday. (If more than one person gets the right answer, more than one book will be awarded! So don’t worry about Persian getting a headstart….) Prize: Unexpected Complication by Amy Knupp!

So, come on! Join the party!
