Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
The pictures are great, but the text leaves a lot to be desired. Even as an introductory book to reading, there is no real thread except that provided by the illustrations of Halloween fun. Many of the alliterative sentences are not holiday specific-Is Ruth's tooth loose? Which silk shoes did Sue choose? A pirate picked a pair of pretty purple pants. A slight offering in the "I Can Read Book" series. 1996 (orig.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2Terrific Halloween tongue twisters that are just silly enough to make beginning readers giggle, whether they read them silently or aloud. Watercolor-and-ink illustrations add to the amusement, telling their own story of children celebrating Halloween. Visual details such as witches in britches and bats eating bedbugs will make observant readers laugh even after they tire of the text. Great seasonal fun.Pamela K. Bomboy, Chesterfield County Public Schools, VA
Hazel Rochman
"Slow sly snakes slither silently" in this I Can Read book. Truesdell's wild, colorful cartoons illustrate the playfully ghoulish one-liners about how "tricky trick-or-treaters try trading sticky treats." Even if young kids don't always get the exact meanings of the tongue twisters, they'll relish the silly sounds of the words and the mischief of the pictures.
