Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Six cemetery ghouls devour an aromatic pumpkin pie, unaware that a witch has hexed the dessert ("Protect this treat... for me alone to eat"). As banshee, zombie et al. enjoy a post-pastry siesta, the spell transforms them into baking ingredients. Tunnell (Mailing Mary) provides only tame surprises; a Halloween Pie recipe, at the end, turns out to be for an ordinary pumpkin pie. Working in shadowy ink crosshatching and oil wash, O'Malley (Leo Cockroach, Toy Tester) administers a scare with closeups of the slack-jawed, droopy-eyed midnight snackers. The story, like the pie, is lukewarm. Ages 4-up. (Sept.) Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Old witch made a scrumptious pumpkin pie. Its tantalizing aroma wafted out the window across the lawn and over the graveyard. The smell aroused the vampire, ghoul, ghost, banshee, zombie and skeleton all of whom just had to follow that smell in hopes of getting some pie. Their noses brought them to the witch's house and soon they had devoured the pie. Was the poor old witch going to miss out on her special treat? Amusing more than scary oil wash and ink illustrations fill the pages of this Halloween tale.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 3 Youngsters who like "scary stories" will find this selection deliciously shivery more from the look of the characters than from the plot. After inviting readers to join her, Old Witch bakes a pumpkin pie. She sets it to cool and casts a spell, "Protect this treat for me alone to eat," before taking off "to make some mischief." Its scent wafts its way to the cemetery, where a spooky ensemble follows it to the source and devours the dessert. Suddenly sleepy, each creature finds a spot in the house to snooze. When Witch arrives, neither the pie nor the uninvited guests can be found. Instead, one sees "a perfectly shaped pumpkin" where Vampire had been, "a dozen brown eggs" where Ghoul had slumbered, "a smidgen of salt" in place of Ghost just waiting to be baked into a new pie. While it is cooling, eerie, white monster wisps are released in the steam, and the creatures return to their homes, "their tummies still full of Halloween pie." Tunnell uses the repetitive actions of his six graveyard goons as an opportunity for alliteration and rhyme. O'Malley's oil washes with ink lines and cross-hatching create dark, shadowy backgrounds, so the florescent details pop out in the foreground. Thus, language and art combine to make this an effective choice for groups. A recipe is appended. When storytime audiences can stomach Erica Silverman's Big Pumpkin (S & S, 1992), and are ready to sample something a bit spicier, serve them Halloween Pie.

    Protect this treat...for me alone to eat

    This story was a really great book. I was at school and I asked my teacher to create an accelerated reader quiz on it and she said that it was great idea if I made the questions! I would really recommend this book to any of you who have young children. It is not a scary book so do not worry about scaring your little one. It really has a good message of sharing and having fun on halloween!I read this book to my two year old sister and she absolutely loved it. she especially loved all the colorful pictures. Also, to all you Halloween Pie lovers look in the back of the book and you may find a little recipe for halloween pie. This is a really wonderful book and you should really share it with your little one and who knows it may turn out to be your favorite book too!!!!!!
