The Monster Berry Family were outside on their front lawn, celebrating Halloween. They had their music blasting and they were dancing and singing. Raspberry, the oldest of the monsters noticed a car pull up into their driveway.
“That is strange,” said Raspberry.” We never get company. We live so far out in the country.”
Raspberry went over to the car to see what was going on. A man and a young child got out of the car. The young child had a goblin costume on.
“Trick-or-treat,” said the child, holding an empty pillow case open.
“Ryan,” said the man. “I don’t think we are going to get any candy here.”
“But Daddy,” said Ryan.” It is Halloween.”
“I am sorry,” said Ryan’s dad to Raspberry. “I was taking my son trick-or-treating but we ended up getting lost. Halloween will be over with before we get back to the city. I didn’t want to disappoint my son.”
“Come with me,” said Raspberry.
Raspberry took Ryan and his dad over to where Blackberry, Blueberry and Gooseberry were dancing and singing.
“We are celebrating Halloween,” said Raspberry.
Raspberry took a bowl full of candy they had sitting on a picnic table and poured it into the pillow case.
“Thank you,” said Ryan, his face lighting up with joy.
“That was very kind of you,” said Ryan’s dad. “You didn’t have to do that.”
“It is our pleasure to help Ryan,” said Raspberry. “Now, come join us and sing and dance.”
Ryan and his dad joined the Monster Berry Family. They had the best Halloween celebration ever!
