Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Slapstick on scale for pint-sized readers, fans will rejoice in this tale featuring the zany antics of this piglet pair." Kirkus Reviews

"This lively book gets the sibling relationship just right. Spooky words and uproarious pictures capture [this] horrible holiday." Booklist, ALA

Publishers Weekly
Several volumes allow kids to spend the howl-iday with familiar friends. The porcine siblings from Tuck in the Pool make an encore appearance in Tuck's Haunted House by Martha Weston. Tuck tries to banish his sister from his Halloween lair, but her presence adds a spine-tinglingly perfect finishing touch.
Children's Literature
Tuck was transforming the garage into a haunted house when his little sister, Bunny, appeared. She wanted to help, but Tuck told her, "You'll just mess things up." To keep her from interfering, Tuck gave her some toilet paper to add to the mummy. Bunny soon became tired and lay down to sleep. Tuck was so busy he didn't notice where she was sleeping. The guests arrived and found the haunted house to be very scary First there were spooky sounds and then something began to rise from the Monster's Coffin. Even Tuck himself had to agree that Bunny was right when she said she could be scary. These little porcine siblings strike just the right note with their interplay. Children will identify with the big brother — little sister relationship. They will join Tuck and Bunny in their excitement over Halloween. Weston's illustrations are full of movement. As Tuck is creating the haunted house, the background is white. When his friends arrive, it changes to dark, murky colors. The book will work well in a Halloween storyhour as well as a lap book shared by parent and child. 2002, Clarion,

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1-With her deft touch for capturing realistic sibling relationships, Weston delivers another fun tale of the piggy brother and younger sister from Tuck in the Pool (Clarion, 1995). Older and wiser, Tuck is focused on creating his first-ever haunted house in the family garage. Tagalong Bunny is determined to help him, making unwelcome suggestions and doing her best to get in the way. True to his role as big brother, the piglet refuses her help, claiming "-you're too little. You'll just mess things up." Ignoring her antics as best he can, he continues to work, creating a cauldron of worms (cold spaghetti), a toilet-paper mummy, ghoul's eyeballs (peeled grapes), and an icky, drippy forest. "Don't touch it.- You're wrecking it," Tuck complains as Bunny wiggles through his Tunnel of Doom. When his guests arrive, they receive an unexpected fright from the wailing Evil Monster Baby. An attentive audience will guess at the mysterious creature's identity, enjoying the comedy along with the mild thrills and chills. Weston's watercolor-and-pencil illustrations animate the siblings' rivalry and affection for one another, and skillfully depict the haunted-house fun as costumed, wide-eyed pigs flee from the frightening sound. This engaging story will introduce a young audience to non-trick-or-treating Halloween fun.-Piper L.
