Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 2

This title celebrates all that is a little bit spooky on this fun holiday. Ann Estelle is dressed as a fairy queen and her friend Michael is a pirate. She does not want to admit that she is a little frightened about trick-or-treating even with her dad along. However, she eventually realizes that Michael, too, is scared, and that they can be brave together. Engelbreit has a comforting way of writing-the sentences are descriptive, but with many familiar words, and they are not too long for beginning readers. The illustrations are bright and cheery and capture the excitement that most children feel at the prospect of trick-or-treating. The bottom border on each page is filled with all of the familiar symbols of Halloween that children love.-Susan E. Murray, Glendale Public Library, AZ

Meet the Author

Mary Engelbreit grew up studying the illustrations in the vintage storybooks of her mother's own childhood, and she developed a unique style that harkens back to those simpler times. She chose to illustrate Clement C. Moore's The Night Before Christmas as her first book for children. It quickly hit the New York Times bestseller list and has become part of the holiday tradition for families across the country. Other treasured additions to a child's first bookshelf include Mary Engelbreit's Mother Goose, Mary Engelbreit's A Merry Little Christmas—both New York Times bestsellers—along with Mary Engelbreit's Nursery Tales and Mary Engelbreit's Fairy Tales.
