Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Simple sentences and lots of onomatopoeia make the text as appealing as the energetic watercolors-and-pen artwork. A fun read for Halloween story hours." Booklist, ALA
Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
This book will be a good choice to read aloud. Mice in their Halloween costumes are out to celebrate the big night. When a cat threatens to spoil their fun, they come up with a clever scheme to scare the cat away. The simple text is delightful and the watercolor illustrations perfectly capture the expressions on the faces of the mice and the cat.
School Library Journal
PreS-K-Costumed mice frisk, whisk, whirl, and twirl through the moonlight to party in the pumpkin patch. Rustle, rustle, swish, swish, the Halloween cat prepares to pounce. After a quick huddle, the clever rodents use their flashlight to create a monstrous shadow to frighten the cat away. Home again, the tired little creatures tumble into bed, except for the littlest, who creates his own monster. Full-page watercolors are appropriate for the holiday while not too scary for the intended audience. The simple text is packed with words to delight the ear. A worthwhile addition for a holiday that never has enough picture books.-Virginia Opocensky, formerly at Lincoln City Libraries, NE

deadmau5 is scary. His music is so bad it's scary. He will also sneak into your house @ night & eat all your candy.

Very simple book and does not translate to nook well. Cute but not worth more than 99¿ . Make it rotate to landscape and it would be much better.
