Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Five stories comprise this early reader, and they have a common theme¾a mild scare. In the first, a brave young boy who claims he is not afraid of ghosts comes face to face with one in an old house high on a hill. The second story of a young girl who is repeatedly warned not to pull the socks off a statue offers more humor than scare, as does the third offering about a house full of ghosts frightened by a group of costumed kids out trick-or treating. The fourth story features a boy who recently moved into a new house and is frightened by a ghost each night when he goes to bed. He prevails upon his parents to move out, but "you know who" decides to tag along. The final story also offers a laugh as a young boy ends up trick-or treating with a real monster. A good Halloween selection in the "Hello Reader!" series¾Level 4 for Grades 2 and 3. 2000, Scholastic, $3.99. Ages 7 to 9. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
