Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“Zesty, candy-corny poems . . . The mixed-media cartoons . . . anticipate but never upstage the inventive punch lines.”—Publishers Weekly

“A deliciously silly collection of Halloween poems, rhymes, and jokes. . . . A festive addition to any collection serving young trick-or-treaters.”—School Library Journal “Sassy and chantable.”—The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books “Spooky and funny.”—Booklist

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
In zesty, candy-corny poems from a first-time author, a witch places an ad for a "Turbo broomstick (color--jet)/ With dual exhausts. FM cassette." Dr. Frankenstein shops for heads of cabbage and ears of corn, and a top-notch "Halloweeny Quiz" offers 10 diverting riddle-couplets that work as verse and as a game. The mixed-media cartoons, on white or airbrush-speckled backgrounds, anticipate but never upstage the inventive punch lines. Ages 4-7. (Oct.) Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.

She is the author of several books for children including Hippopotamus Stew and Other Silly Animal Poems, and lives in Glastonbury, Connecticut. JoAnn Adinolfi is also a fan of Halloween. Working on this book enabled her to draw some of her favorite subjects—monsters.
