By Kevin Purdy

Young adult, Comedy & satire, General fiction | Paperback, eBook


Decimus Croome is a dastardly, despicable and downright deplorable old fellow who is definitely the crankiest person in the entire town of Aberton. But worse than that, Decimus Croome hates Halloween and all holidays. As a result, he ruins Halloween for everyone in the town and especially the children and teens. Decimus Croome is content to live in his gloomy old house and avoid all human contact whenever possible. He even shuns his own daughter and grandson. But he has a rude and horrifying awakening one memorable Halloween when he is visited by four spirits who are determined to show old Decimus Croome the misery he has inflicted upon his friends, neighbors and family members. Based on A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens, The Legend of Decimus Croome is bound to become a Halloween classic for readers of all ages for generations to come. Follow old man Croome as he is visited first by the lovely but disturbing spirit of his dearly departed wife. She warns him of three spirits yet to follow. And oh what spirits they are. Each one is more disturbing than the last, and each one has an important message for Croome. The first spirit is a truly horrifying yet disturbingly funny pumpkin-headed ghost who delivers Croome to his distant and not-so-distant past. Along the journey, Croome is warmed with nostalgia and terrified by the some of the most tragic events in his life. The second spirit is a shape-shifting witch who breaks every stereotype about witches while nearly driving Croome insane with her wild antics and slapstick delivery. And the third phantasm delivers the final glimpse of Croome's diabolically humdrum life and the future that is in store for him if he doesn't change his wicked ways. Throughout this delightful Halloween novel, we meet a cast of characters from a devoted employee to a charming young leukemia patient. We are also entertained by a precocious black feline named Black Magic who witnesses each spiritual visit and the changes in her boringly predictable guardian. Join Tommy Bobbich, Decimus Croome and a whole cast of ghosts, witches, ghouls and scarecrows in this modern day holiday story that is sure to provide you with chills, laughs and maybe even a tearful moment or two as you read The Legend of Decimus Croome: a Halloween Carol. You will never look at Halloween the same again.
