KIRKUS REVIEW

It's Halloween 1687, and Jonathan and Hannah Wadsworth carve a devil's head jack-o-lantern to scare old Goody Gifford whom they believe to be a witch. But their father has more important plans for the secret hiding place in the Sachem's Tree, for when Sir Edmund Andros arrives at the meetinghouse to revoke Hartford's charter the document mysteriously disappears. Declaimed in ringing free verse -- and, as visualized by Margot Tomes, nicely scarifying.
