Lila and the Jack-o'-Lantern: Halloween Comes to America

When Lila and her family leave Ireland for the United States, Lila misses many things, but especially Halloween. Each year, she and her siblings look forward to tricking a sly spirit named Jack by carving turnips into jack-o'-lanterns and walking the streets of their small town in ghostly costumes. But in her new home, nobody seems familiar with either tradition.

With no turnips in sight, can she bring the spirit of the holiday to the crowded city streets of her new home? Maybe the funny orange gourd at the market — along with a new friend — can help! This fictionalized account of how the Halloween traditions of Ireland became something familiar but new in America is a warm celebration of making a home in a new land.
