Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Vicki Foote
A Halloween story in rhyme, this book is a part of Step Two in the "Step-into-Reading" series. This level in reading is for children "who recognize familiar words and sound out new words with help." It is Halloween and the children all dress up as monsters to go out to collect their treats. An array of illustrations in rich fall colors shows the various monsters as they go door to door. A series of adjectives such as "furry and fluffy" describe the monsters, and then their actions are described as "munching and crunching." The words are fun and the sentences are short. After they fill their bags, one of the monsters falls asleep. They all try to stay awake but "Now the moon is high and bright. Monsters start to say good night." They wave goodbye to their friends and are tucked into bed. Children will enjoy reading the bouncy rhymes and will like the illustrations of the cute monsters. Two sticker sheets with Halloween pictures are included. Reviewer: Vicki Foote
Kirkus Reviews
Simple rhymes celebrate Halloween in solid, easy-to-read fashion: "Monsters munching, / monsters crunching, / monsters chomping, / monsters stomping!" Corey's monsters disport themselves happily till, one by one, the little monsters get sleepy and bid Halloween goodnight. Corey's text is merely serviceable, but Terry's illustrations more than compensate. His costumed kids transform from ordinary children to marvelously bulbous, outlandish creatures in psychedelic colors and with gorgeously bug-eyed faces. They walk down the darkening streets, plastic trick-or-treat pumpkins dangling from improbably protruding childish hands, not so much kids wearing costumes as the real deal-nary a witch nor a superhero among them-in a validation of the transformative power of the day. A happy change of pace for beginning readers. (Early reader. 5-7)
