An Unusual Hallowe'en Decoration

Hallowe'en is all about the unusual, right? So how do you get a decoration that is different? Think like an 11 year old!

This Hallowe'en bear is a reading fiend!!!

I gave Jordan the Hallowe'en decorations and told him to go to town. He did simply hang some of them. He also made a "haunted backyard" with scarily decorated pumpkins on strings rigged so he can make them swing towards people.

But first, he set up the above display. He wanted to find a book with a high-sounding name like A Scholarly Analysis of Eighteenth Century Literature That Turned into the Best Book of the Eighteenth Century but after looking around he settled for Geometry and Trigonometry for Calculus.  Around the bear are all the books he's either finished reading or is planning to read. They range from Calvin and Hobbs to Star Trek books to Mozart biographies. A rather widely-read creature, I must say.

I have no idea why Jordan wanted a literary bear in a pumpkin costume as a Hallowe'en decoration. It's just random.

But it's fun!
