Harriet's Halloween Candy: 12/24/10
Here it is Christmas Eve and my review randomizer has picked a Halloween book review for posting!
Harriet and I read Harriet's Halloween Candy by Nancy Carlson a week before Halloween. What I didn't expect was how prophetic it would end up being.
In the book, Harriet has a great haul during trick-or-treating and her little brother doesn't. Their mother insists that she has to share with her brother. At first she does it reluctantly until she nearly makes herself sick with them. Then she realizes she has far more than she could ever eat and decides to share them fairly with her brother.
As it turns out, my Harriet found herself in a similar situation except with her big brother. They both went trick-or-treating for the first time this year. Sean though got too shy with all the crowds and decided to beg out of it after only two stops. So Harriet ended up with about ten times the amount of candy. At first she didn't want to share but by midway through November she decided, like the Harriet in the book, that sharing with her brother was a good idea after all.

Review Randomizer? What's that?

I write my reviews ahead of time. I assign a number to each finished review. Then I use a random number generator to pick which review to post on any given day.
