Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Six different colored masks (flaps) with die-cut holes for the eyes (a black cat, a blue pirate) reveal the multicultural faces beneath the disguises in Halloween Colors by Carla Dijs.
Children's Literature
When we think of fall certain colors come to mind. The same is true of Halloween¾orange, yellow and black are certainly the most prominent. In this board book with shiny pages and what looks like computer generated art, you kids are faced with a scary image such as a black cat peering out from the page. The cat is actually a mask, which when flipped, reveals a smiling young girl. The next image is a pirate all in blue, then an alien in red, followed by a Frankenstein-type monster in yellow and a green dragon. No orange in this book, which struck me as strange. The cast is a multicultural one and the happy faced children behind the masks should dispel any fears. The color lesson is there so the book can be used at times other than Halloween. 2002, Cartwheel/Scholastic,
