The Isle of Sunflower by Lorraine Hawley
A morning sweet as candy corn, Lolly discovered enchanted cobwebs strewn across the yard. They whispered to her, leading from her home to the garden.
The cackling gossamer kept going and going until she found herself lost in a maze of sunflowers.
Weaving through stems, and over thick leaves, she slid on trails of orange sunlight.
She played among spiders and raven, darting through the spirit-filled land.
Deep. Deep, she crept into the dense, witchy green—not a graveyard to be seen.
The ill winds howled. Flowers bowed.
Is this a game of Trick or Treat?
The hours ticked down, with each deadly turn. Lolly feared her way lost in the night.
The sun then bent and offered its sight—a charmed light on All Hallows' Eve.
