    Who doesn't like Halloween?  Well apparently Farmer Brown doesn'

    Who doesn't like Halloween?  Well apparently Farmer Brown doesn't.  He is scared silly of that spooky night.  "Witches give him nightmares.  Pirates give him shivers."  His remedy for Halloweenitis?  He puts on his footed pajamas, draws the shades down low, locks the door securely and goes to bed.  But he is not all that disengaged entirely from the rituals because before he settles down to sleep he puts a big bowl of candy on his front porch but then posts a "Do Not Disturb" sign on his front door. 




    Farmer Brown begins to hear creaks, crunches and all sorts of crazy sounds outside his house. He can't stand not knowing what is making those noises so he gets up to take a peek out of his window to see what is happening.  He discovers that the whole bowl of candy he placed there is gone and a poster has been nailed to his door that reads: "Halloween Party in the barn."  He can make out a huge shadowy image with a cape and an orange beak coming closer shouting, "Quack, quack, quackle."  Alarmed he runs and dives into his bed pulling the covers over his head.




    His barnyard friends however have a very different idea about how the night should be orchestrated.  A cow dresses up as a skeleton,  the sheep sport witches's hats, the cat has on batwings and the chickens look mighty ghostly.  They are out to party Halloween night away in the barn and everyone is invited, especially  Farmer Brown.   He cannot stand it any longer and he gets up to go and see what all the Halloween fuss is about.  When he gets to the party he finds there are a lot of surprises in store for him and he, Farmer Brown himself, is the centre of attention.




    This book is not scary at all,  but very funny. The illustrations with their saturated watercolours are vibrant, friendly and brilliant.  Lewin's moonlit colour pallet add just the right touch to create a mood of spookiness to the night.  Cronin uses onomatopoeia and repetition to generate an eerie feeling. It is the perfect read aloud for this wonderful Halloween season.
