A giant bat steals candy from bullies on Halloween and delivers it to good little boys and girls on Christmas morning in this anti-bullying tale for children of all ages.

"Spooky, witty, bursting with heart!" - Caroline Thompson- screenwriter- The Nightmare Before Christmas
"If Dr. Seuss and Dickens met Poe in a playground, the resulting collaboration might read like The Legend of Candy Claws, a sweet, creepy morality tale for kids, beautifully illustrated, endlessly charming and armed with an important, socially relevant message." - Fangoria Magazine

The first two stanzas:
"Long, long ago in a land that I know
almost too far away to believe,
began a great tale, I use to regale
the children on Christmas eve.
It tells of a creature with a curious feature
that sets him apart from the rest;
a great mighty gargoyle,
who was named, Hargoyle
for the heart shaped -patch on his chest."
