Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
The very silly cartoon illustrations as well as the black pages with brightly colored text set this book apart visually from many of its Halloween counterparts. Youngsters may even be inspired to create elaborate borders on pages they write themselves. In this rhyming story, Emily is gathering all the elements for a witch's costume┬żeach item written in a different color and repeated in the style of "this is the house that Jack built": "This is the skirt that grandpa bought...to go with the cape that grandma brought for Emily to wear on Halloween night." The cumulative rhyme begins again when Emily begins collecting goodies: "This is the treat that came from the boy who answered the bell that Emily rang on Halloween night." Children will very quickly be able to read along, anticipate the next sentence and then replace the colored words with words describing their own costume and trick or treating. 2001, Puffin Books, $5.99. Ages 3 to 7. Reviewer: Karen Leggett
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-Preparing a costume for Emily is an event for her entire family. Grandma brings her a purple cape and Grandpa brings a skirt to match. In a pattern akin to "This Is the House That Jack Built," striped socks, a red purse, and, of course, a big black hat are added. Then, "This is a snake that's long and slim-/To go with the hat with a big, black rim-/To go with the purse with the strings untied-/To go with the socks with stripes on the side-." Mom decorates and Dad looks on. Each alternating page is black with a colorful trim and the words for each accessory pop out from the otherwise white print in bold colors along with skeletons, bats, or ghosts. A boldly colored, full-page illustration of the child and the cumulative action appears on the opposite page. This is a great read-aloud for the younger set and a good choice for newly independent readers. It has all of the fun and none of the fright of Halloween.-Wanda Meyers-Hines, Ridgecrest Elementary School, Huntsville, AL Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
