This is our current Halloween favorite.
Kashi and her older brother Yukio are walking home, talking about an old rhyme about scarecrows.
Scaring themselves just a teeny bit for fun!
Love the pumpkins everywhere decor!
But even good brothers and sisters can get annoyed with each other. And Kashi did everything like Yukio did.
On Halloween night, she came out to see his friends dressed like a bird, just like Yukio.
Harsh words are said and Kashi's heart breaks.
I love that his friends tell him his reaction was over the top. Sometimes we need friends that tell us we are being excessive.
Kashi stayed home, peeking out of an upstairs window while Yukio and his friends went trick-or-treating.
I really enjoy these illustrations! And if someone had told me you could make fun and cute illustrations using shades of purple, orange, black and white ONLY I would have raised my eyebrows at them. But here we are. Perfectly adorable.
When the trick-or-treaters here a noise, all kinds of dread possibilities come to mind.
But... it is the scarecrow.
Dressed as a bird, Yukio gets the brunt of the Scarecrow's wrath.
The scarecrow reaches out for who knows what terrible deed, and....
All is well again with Kashi and Yukio.
I love the little hearts that break and are sewn back together with words.
