Learning mixes with fun in the next batch of titles. Molded-plastic ghosts peek out of die-cut holes on the cover and pages of the slightly oblong paper-over-board book Five Little Ghosts by William Boniface, illus. by Jerry Smath. Children start with the quintet and count down as the ghosts dwindle with each turn of the page. In Five Little Pumpkins, a handful of costumed kids purchases the titular molded plastic quintet, one by one, and transform them into jack-o'-lanterns.
Children's Literature
In this familiar Halloween countdown, a variation on the more familiar pumpkin, countdown, the book opens with five little ghosts setting out to explore. The first one finds a spooky old house, the second a cemetery, the third heads off to rattle a chain on the fence at the zoo. Eventually, there is only one ghost left and he finds a perfect place to hide and then gives kids a big surprise. The special attraction in this sturdy little book is the die cut holes that reveal all the ghosts and then reduce in number along with the countdown. The ghosts are plastic and raised on the pages and could probably be pried loose with persistence, which is why the book carries a warning about its age suitability. With parental supervision, it will work fine with younger kids. 2002, Price Stern Sloan,
