A fun story about mean ol' Jack, a man meaner than a rattlesnake, a man so mean that ultimately he is unwelcome in Heaven and in Hell! This is an adaptation of an old folktale from the South, and is often credited with explaining the origin of jack-o-lanterns. Wonderfully illustrated (I love the portrayal of Jack), laugh out loud funny with a subtle moral message as well.
