Good For You by Kathryn Hilger Kingen

Scaring Stingy Jack
Did you know that the great pumpkin owes its fame to a legendary man named Stingy Jack? According to Irish legend, going back hundreds of years, this miserable character was so crabby, nasty and disliked, that when he died he was...
Corncob Analytics
