Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
"Fleming kindles seasonal thoughts with concise couplets and handmade-paper images, in which vermilion and fuschia highlights glow like neon against grainy black and evergreen," wrote PW. Ages 3-6. (Aug.) Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
Publishers Weekly
A jack-o-lantern stares from triangular holes: "Piece of pie,/ pumpkin eye." A brisk refrain quickens the pace: "Trick or treat / pounding feet,/ eerie shadows/ fill the street." Fleming (The Everything Book) kindles seasonal thoughts with concise couplets and handmade-paper images, in which vermilion and fuschia highlights glow like neon against grainy black and evergreen. Her pleasingly spooky visions of peaked roofs, pumpkins and trick-or-treaters convey an expectant atmosphere. Ages 2-5. (Sept.) Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
Children's Literature
Simple rhymed couplets evoke the exciting and anticipatory mood of Halloween night in which "Trick or treat, pounding feet, jack-o'-lanterns line the street." Fleming's signature illustrations of paper pulp poured through stencils glow with deep night colors and are set off with bright orange pumpkins, yellow hair and the huge, full harvest moon. Challenging vocabulary ("wretched witches roam the street"..."clacking bones/muffled moans") will appeal to independent trick-or-treaters, while younger hand-holders will respond to the slightly scary word choices (tattered, toothless, eerie, hissing, swooping). The repeated phrase of pounding feet conveys the excitement of running from house to house in the night as "Halloween has found our street." A great read-aloud for the season's story hour, and a semi-scary but ultimately friendly reminder of the childhood joys of being out and about on this special holiday, disguised but a little bit scared by others' disguises, and getting candy. 2001, Henry Holt, $15.95. Ages 4 to 8. Reviewer: Susan Hepler
From The Critics
Bright, bold colors and spooky illustrations add much fun to the rhyming text. Perfect for a Halloween storytime! 2001, Henry Holt and Company, $15.95. Ages 3 to 8. Reviewer: C. Henebry SOURCE: Parent Council, September 2001 (Vol. 9, No. 1)
School Library Journal
K-Gr 2-Simple rhymed couplets evoke the anticipatory mood of Halloween night in which "Trick or treat-/pounding feet,/jack-o'-lanterns/line the street." Fleming's signature illustrations of paper pulp poured through stencils glow with deep night colors set off with bright orange pumpkins, yellow hair, and the huge harvest moon. Challenging vocabulary ("wretched witches/roam the street./Clacking bones,/muffled moans") will appeal to independent trick-or-treaters while younger hand-holders will respond to the slightly scary word choices (tattered, toothless, eerie, hissing, swooping). The repeated phrase of pounding feet conveys the excitement of running from house to house in the night as "Halloween/has found our street." This is a great read-aloud for storyhours and a semi-scary but ultimately friendly reminder of the childhood joys of being out and about, disguised but a little bit frightened by others' costumes, and getting candy on this special holiday.-Susan Hepler, Burgundy Farm Country Day School, Alexandria, VA Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
All eyes in a Halloween story hour will be riveted to this stellar story of trick-or-treaters enjoying the deliciously scary nature of this special night. Images of eyes peek out throughout the story with golden cat eyes, lighted windows in houses, and the pie-shaped eyes of jack-o'-lanterns looming on oversized pages. Fleming (The Everything Book, 2000, etc.) uses her signature medium of cotton pulp poured into hand-cut stencils to create the shapes for her paper collages with midnight-blue backgrounds lit by a full moon. Each double-page spread has a rhyming couplet set in huge white type, relating a pitch-perfect story full of heart-pounding excitement ("toes curl, heads swirl, things bump, hearts thump"). The brilliant design includes creative text placement and superb left-to-right flow as the trick-or-treaters work their way down the street, becoming more excited and animated as the night progresses. Those who object to witches will want to skip this one, as "wretched witches roam the street" and fly through the sky on the final page-but for those who celebrate Halloween in all its spooky glory, this story seems destined to become an essential read-aloud for October story hours. (Picture book. 3-7)
