About the Book

Count Candy Corn by Ruth Bruegger #kidlit

Maddix is a little boy who loves to count but hates Halloween because everyone is spooky and scary. One day while walking down the street, he sees something odd on the ground. Maddix picks up the colorful triangle and learns from his mother that it is called candy corn.

After Maddix hears the story of his aunt’s candy dish and the disappearing candy corn, he decides to make his own candy dish to see if the mysterious Count Candy Corn Bat will steal his candy, too.

Maddix carefully counts his candy, places them in his special count candy corn dish, and goes to bed. The next morning, Maddix counts: one, two, three, four–and then none! Could it be the mysterious candy corn bat? Now Maddix must be brave and try to find the truth.
