Publishers Weekly - Publishers WeeklyThe Bear in the Big Blue House assuages Tutter's fears of the holiday in Eek! It's Halloween! by Laura Driscoll, illus. by Tom Leigh. Stills from the TV show are set within Leigh's drawings, which glow in the dark.
Children's LiteratureTutter, the familiar blue mouse from "Bear in the Blue House" TV program and books, is not so sure that he likes Halloween. It seems to be a bit scary. Bear assures him that there is nothing to fear and that they will have lots of fun at the upcoming party. Jack-o'-lanterns can be spooky, but they are also fun, and the skeleton and bat decoration may look scary but there is nothing very frightening about paper decorations. The biggest scare is when he looks out the window and sees a bunch of staring eyes, of course it turns out to be the rest of the gang all in costumes and ready for the party. The extra added-attraction to this reassuring text is the glow-in-the dark feature. The pages have been treated and when sensitized to light will give off a glow. The book, with its sturdy board pages, will stand up and can serve as a night-light. 2002, Simon Spotlight/Simon & Schuster,
