Everyone knows most young saplings dream of becoming Christmas trees. But one grumpy, old tree who doesn't like lights, decorations, or people is determined to be different. Get ready to meet The Halloween Tree!
As Mama says, “Time for bed,” Lollipop throws her arms overhead. She just can’t stop, jumping and snapping to the beat of hip hop. She dances down the long hall to brush her teeth and get ready for bed, with her knees jutting, hands tutting, arms cranking and body swanking. She calls out night-night to her family, as she puts on her pjs, blows kisses to the dj, and tries to settle down and go to sleep.
