Overview

The fun of Halloween comes alive in this beautifully illustrated children's book. The drawings, done each year by the author on the eve of Halloween, follow various Halloween characters as they prepare to celebrate this mystical holiday - pumpkins, witches, bats, ravens, black cats, scarecrows, spiders, ghosts, and more. Should they have their party in the graveyard or the pumpkin patch? Should they dress up or simply go as themselves? Take a ride on the witch's broom and enter the pumpkin for a magical trip both you and your kids will not soon forget. Pre-K through 6th.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
A playful and at times eloquent rhyming poem invites readers to take a journey on a witch’s broom and “through a pumpkin,” where archetypal characters such as ghosts, a pumpkin head, and scarecrow are gathering: “Where shall the party/ take place for the night?/ In a spooky old castle/ with ghosts all in sight.” Using creamy oranges and ethereal whites and grays, the images are often impressionistic and sometimes frightening: wraithlike ghosts crowd the entrance to a cemetery; elsewhere, two eerie figures stand in a field next to a scarecrow. Franklin balances creepiness and fun in her atmospheric autumnal illustrations. Ages 4�8. (July)
