Book Description

Opal has never been trick-or-treating because her parents think Halloween is evil and candy is bad for children. She sits alone in her bed with her emo bunny and longs to dress up and ask strangers for candy.

Meanwhile, everyone keeps talking about holy cows, but nobody wants to discuss evil unholy cows that creep through nighttime pastures in search for opportunities to make the world a terrible place to live.

Runyx the Unholy Cow, together with Stryk the Scarecrow and Able the Raven have a mischievous plan to change Opal’s life.

2.0 out of 5 stars Mischief Cow January 3, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really enjoy John Carroll's Demented Children stories. My son and I love 'Zachary Zombie and the Lost Boy'. This one was just ok for me though. The Unholy Cow is more of a trouble-making cow rather than evil. However, that is appropriate for a children's story. I did have one rather large issue with the story, though. In the introduction the author warns of various bad things in the story (lying to parents, sneaking out, talking to strangers, being rude, etc.) which are things that an adult can talk with a child about. The issue I had with the story and the warning is that there are two references to drug and alcohol use in the story and there is absolutely NO mention of that as a warning. Yes, the story is for 'demented' children but that still doesn't mean I want my child reading about it like it' ok. So, unless you plan on answering somw questions that might pop up (or, I suppose, you could skip that part altogether, it would be easy to do) you might want to take that into consideration before reading it to a younger child. I read it to my nine year old (we've already had The Drug Talk so I used it as an example of what NOT to do when you're a teenager) and it would have been nice to have a little warning. Especially when the author has already gone out of his way to highlight other bad examples the story shows.

Edit: Since the review the author has addressed these issues

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting. January 13, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I liked this although it was too short. It felt as though it had been a chapter in a longer story. I felt as though there were parts missing even though I couldn't say what.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good book for children January 10, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I like to read books for children before I would recommend to anyone. This book is good for fourth grade or up .it is a short book for someone who has an imaginary mind. Brings a new light to Halloween. Will read other books by this author anytime.

A very quick and enjoyable read, if a bit lighter on the "evil" I was expecting. Wouldn't mind reading more.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cute November 10, 2012
By Krtyr
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was an imaginative, cute little read. I'm not sure what age group I'd put it in...maybe pre-teen. I don't think it has a moral, nor does it make a point about anything, but it's kinda cute and can be read in one sitting...

This was a fun, short story. I greatly enjoyed it. Due to a bit of mature subject matter (drinking and smoking weed), I'm not sure I can recommend it for children. Read more

More About the Author

John H. Carroll was the youngest of seven children and was born in Atlanta, Georgia in 1970 where he was kept in a dresser drawer with the clean socks. Luckily, he wasn't kept with the dirty socks or else he might have grown up to become slightly warped.

As a child, John spent most of his time wandering through the Mojave Desert in an attempt to avoid people. He would stare at the sky, imagining what it would be like to explore different worlds. One of his favorite memories is watching his dad build the fuselage of Evel Kneivel's skycycle in their garage. One of his least favorite moments was watching that skycycle fall into the Snake River. (Not his dad's fault and he has documentation to prove it, so nyah)

As a teenager, John spent most of his time driving wherever he could in an attempt to avoid people. He would stare at the road, imagining what it would be like to explore different worlds. He was the captain of the chess team, lettered in golf and band while in high school, and wasn't beaten up anywhere near as much as one might imagine.

As an adult, John spends most of his time staring at a computer screen in an attempt to avoid people. He stares at the monitor for hours, imagining what it would be like to explore different worlds. He has been married to his wonderful wife for sixteen years and they have three obnoxio . . . wonderful children who always behave . . . when they're asleep.

Emo bunny minions surround John at most times. He is their imaginary friend and they look to him for guidance. At one point, they took over the world. No one noticed because they left everything exactly as it was. They gave the world back after a week because it was depressing.

The Willden Trilogy is his first endeavor into the field of writing. Other series and standalone works will be forthcoming. In addition, John has written a number of short stories that can be found at most eBook sites. He writes in the evenings and weekends whenever possible. Regrettably, the family mentioned in a previous paragraph desires food and shelter, requiring the author to possess a full time job until his writing makes him rich.
