Kligore’s halloween alarm fails to awaken him so that he can cast his daily early morning spell over Sleepy Hollow. Harry and his friends awaken to three feet of freshly fallen snow as winter punches through Halloween for one wonderful moment. Sleepy Hollow Middle School’s very first SNOW DAY! The Good Mischief Team has a whole day to figure out what to do with a glorious, magnificent, juicy twenty-four hours, a gift courtesy of Mayor Maximus Kligore.
This is another great middle grade story about the Moon children.
I love the “moon” refererences in the children names: Honey Moon and Harvest Moon. They are so cute.
The mayor is quite a villain in this story. He doesn’t cast a spell to prevent snow from coming to Sleepy Hollow, so it snows there the next day. I can’t imagine a town without snow, or a spell that can prevent snow from falling! We have had so much snow in Toronto already, and it’s only January so we have a few more months of snow to go!
This is a good twist on the snow day story. Most kids are always wishing for a snow day so they can be off school, but the kids in Sleepy Hollow had never had a snow day before so it was an extra special occasion.
This is a great winter story for kids!
