Some readers have been wondering WHY there are monsters, ghosts, living costume creatures, and other oddities lurking around these stories with no explanation as to where they came from or what big reason there is behind them. The answer to that is: I don’t care. 

 

There are definitely books, shows, movies, etc which rely on logic and rules for the audience to understand them, but The Scarecrow Spookshow simply isn’t such a story. To me, explaining the nature of the monsters is like explaining how Hobbes is ‘alive’ to Calvin; the reason behind it isn’t important and actually kills the fun when you go de-constructing it. 

 

We’re all just as bewildered as the DeMonte family as to what that thing is, but at least WE can enjoy it! Happy Halloween, kiddies!
