Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1—This tale of friendship unfolds in three short stories written with simple phrases and strong dialogue. Youngsters will laugh as "spooky friends"-Scarlet, a green, pigtailed vampire (complete with pet bat), and Igor, a tubby mummy-find solutions to their capricious disagreements: "If Igor wanted to read, Scarlet wanted to sing. If Scarlet wanted to nap, Igor wanted to dance." Characters mirror preschoolers' emotional understanding of friendship and each of the stories provides a lighthearted plot as Scarlet and Igor learn that no matter what disagreements ensue, working things out together is even better. Colored font depicts heightened emotions while warm-hued, playful illustrations entertain emerging readers and provide ample context for comprehension and fluency. This is a great selection for those looking for delightful rather than frightful Halloween books, titles on friendship, or general early-reader collections.—Melissa Smith, Royal Oak Public Library, MI
