A troop of cats traverse a spooky landscape as they make their way to a party hosted by ghosts. Each double-page spread shows the felines' encounters with the likes of an owl, jack-o'-lanterns or a bat. One or two of these creepy meetings may be too abstract for the youngest readers, as the cats hear eerie noises with no discernible source on the page. The text, which consists of one rhyming couplet per scene, mostly scans despite a couple of wobbles: "Five black cats get a bit of a scare / As the flip-flapping wings of a bat fill the air." The sleek, slightly retro art, likely created using a computer, depicts the cats cavorting at night through a shadowy cityscape, the countryside and a haunted house; they may scare some toddlers and delight others. A brighter color palette would have given the project a friendlier, more universal appeal. Luckily, the well-lit, final party scene provides a playful conclusion. For toddlers unafraid of typical Halloween imagery. (Board book. 2-4)
