Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
In the scratch and sniff title The Spooky Smells of Halloween, by Mary Man-Kong, illus. by Viviana Garofoli, young Sammy invites youngsters to prepare a Halloween party with him, enticing them to sample the scents of bobbed apples, pumpkins, berry scary punch and the ever-alluring aroma of skunk. Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
Sammy and his mom and dad give a Halloween party for the neighborhood children and then they all go trick-or-treating together. A perfectly simple story is embellished with the scented "scratch and sniff" spots on the apple (smelled like red delicious to me), pumpkin, "berry brew" punch (smelled just like a flavored drink), and the bubble gum given out by Katie's mom smelled just like I remember that sticky pink treat should. Sammy dresses up like a pirate, Katie comes as a witch , and other children are decked out like a ghost, a mummy, and Dracula. Even the pet cat dresses up like a skunk, which leads to the pivotal joke in the story . . . an extra black and white stripped "cat" appears at the end for the last scratch-and-sniff spot—A SKUNK (No, I did not have the courage to test that one—you are on your own!). The uncluttered, cartoon-like pictures are endearing, not-too-spooky images that fit the age group quite well. 2005, Golden Books/Random House, Ages 3 up.
