CLIFTON PARK - Halloween season is on the minds of many, including two young girls in Clifton Park. They just put a book together in honor of their neighbor who recently passed away.

The book is now available on Amazon. It's called "The House That Gave Out Full Size Candy Bars."

Sisters Adalyn and McKenna Vidoni were heartbroken when they heard their beloved next-door neighbor, Miss Helen Hubert, passed away in June.

The 10 and 8-year-old girls decided to write about it.

The young Clifton Park authors first thought of the things Miss Helen loved. That included flowers and Halloween, when she would give out full-sized candy bars.

"We thought it was going to be like a book that we would write with normal pieces of paper and stuff. We didn't really think it was going to go on Amazon or anything. Anyone could do really do it," said Addie.

"It was pretty easy, but the money was a lot of money for the pictures," noted McKenna.

The story takes place Halloween night. Addie and McKenna are trick-or-treating, and the last stop is always Miss Helen's house.

However, they realize Miss Helen isn't there. That's when they decide to carry on the tradition and give out their own full-size candy bars.
Something the girls plan on doing this Halloween.
