Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1An engaging book for youngsters anticipating the excitement of Halloween. Each double-page spread has a simple rhyming verse on the left-hand side accompanied by a lift-the-flap with a picture clue on the right; each page illustrates some seasonal or scary item, ranging from a skeleton to a witch in a black hat. Words are carefully placed on the page in large, oversized print, making this selection also enticing to beginning readers. Costumed trick-or-treaters dressed as witches, dragons, pumpkins, and ghosts are interspersed throughout the story as they scurry from house to house, hoarding their treats. The captivating acrylic watercolors in bold, bright colors are full of scenes associated with autumna harvest moon and twinkling stars, a spooky graveyard, and swirling leaves. The last page is a special delight as a mylar mirror is cleverly attached over a monster's face, so "the scariest monster...it's you." As the book is tiny, it would be a wonderful one-on-one choice and might be accompanied by Ed Emberley's Go Away, Big Green Monster! (Little, Brown, 1993).Debra Gold, Cuyahoga County Public Library, Parma Heights, OH
