Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

PreS
Tucker wants to look scary this Halloween and not cute like he was last year, dressed as a pumpkin. His owner tries several traditional costumes on the small canine, including dressing him as a hot dog, a bumblebee, and in a Hawaiian outfit complete with hula skirt and lei, but the dog is not happy with the image they project. He drapes himself in a white sheet for a spooky ghost costume but the sheet won't stay on. Finally deciding to be a mummy, he wraps himself in toilet paper, runs to the door where he scares off two trick-or-treating children, and is greatly satisfied. The energetic, bright-white pup stands out on each of the richly colored pages. This simple story will appeal to very young children just beginning to celebrate the day.

    Leslie McGuirk has done it again! With 'Tucker's Spooky Halloween,' she has taken her winsome white terrier to new heights of kid appeal. And don't be spooked by the title: this is a tender tale that will warm hearts at any season.
