Once there was a dark, foggy graveyard full of more than just tombstones, trees, and grass. This graveyard had a lot more. Every Halloween night the creatures of Halloween would come out when all of the trick-or-treaters were back in their homes. They would have a Halloween party in the graveyard. The jack-o-lanterns would hop off the porches to get to the party, skeletons would come out of their graves, spiders would climb off of their webs, cats come out of their houses, and vampires and bats would come out of the trees, and many others.

I think we need to help him.” “I’ll help!” exclaimed Jack the jack-o-lantern, going to the front of the group. “Me too!” Sally the spider said, also stepping forward as well as Sammy the skeleton. Then, one after the other, everyone at the party stepped forward and volunteered to help.
The only creature at the party that had not stepped forward was the grumpy, old ghost that they called Galileo. Then Galileo said upset, “Well I’m not going and there’s nothing you can do about it!” “Galileo please. We really need you to help, not just…
