But Nina would not hear of it. A white sheet thrown over the head was all very well for your first Halloween, but the second demanded something more elaborate. She was enchanted by the story of Hansel and Gretel and the Gingerbread House. Perhaps if she and Ferdinand dressed as Hansel and Gretel they would find a gingerbread house too.
Ferdinand did not think so.
"Why not?" asked Nina, "Hansel and Gretel dressed that way and look what they found!"
This was hard to argue with. It was true.
