A fun display of Halloween folk art. Combining intricate artwork with short poems, this collection captures Halloween themes with poems of spiders, bats, and pumpkins. Each original entry is displayed in the Pennsylvania Dutch dialect with an English translation. The artwork, a traditional style of scissor cutting, is cut from black paper, overlaying an orange background. A brief introduction reveals how this group came to celebrate October 31, and an instructional page includes a pattern for readers to make their own Halloween paper cutting.
