Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Three spine-tingling paperbacks add up to An I Can Read Halloween Treat: Arthur's Halloween Costume by Lillian Hoban; In a Dark, Dark Room and Other Scary Stories by Alvin Schwartz, illus. by Dirk Zimmer; and A Know-Nothing Halloween by Michele Sobel Spirn, illus. by R.W. Alley. (Sept.) Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
Three of this publisher's most popular Halloween titles have been packaged together: Arthur's Halloween Costume by Lillian Hoban (1984), In a Dark, Dark Room and Other Scary Stories retold by Alvin Schwartz (1984), and A Know-Nothing Halloween by Michele Sobel Spirn (2000). Hoban's chimpanzee, Arthur, is having a difficult time deciding on his costume. No store bought costumes for him. Instead, Arthur goes searching through the trash can to see what he can use. Schwartz, a folklorist, includes six tales and a poem that over the years have become some of the most popular among children. Spirn provides loads of slapstick humor in her "noodlehead" story starring four best friends: Boris, Morris, Doris and Norris. Spirn's silly humor, Schwartz's spookiness and Hoban's universal dilemma are just right for second graders. All three books were well-received when they were first published. Each is a Level 2 Reading With Help "I can Read Book." 2004, HarperTrophy/HarperCollins, Ages 6 to 8.
