Los Gatos Black on Halloween is wonderful picture book with a storyline that incorporates spanish words into the rhyming text.
Even for non-spanish speaking children reading this book it is not hard understanding the spanish words because they are so perfectly placed into the english text, and if you are still guessing at a word there is a glossary in the back of the book. The use of spanish words can only enhance and enlighten the minds of the children who read this picture book. In the book we see all these monsters, ghosts, witches, and vampires coming together on Halloween night to." throw a monstrous ball." When there is a knock at the door and we see that it is just a couple of children trick-or-treating, we learn that it is not the children that should be scared of monsters on Halloween because it is in fact the monsters who are scared of the little children! The dark ominous illustrations give the book the right eerie "Halloween" feel and only enhance the text even further bringing the reader into this spine-chilling world. I can not wait for Halloween to come around this year because I know this book will be read in my house to get everyone, even the adults into the holiday spirit.
