Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Little goblins learn to count to 10 with this yarnand they'll pick up some good costume ideas, too. What is counted are trick-or-treating friends: two witches who meet up with a clown, a skeleton, and so forth. Nothing macabre whatsoever herejust happy, brightly colored characters on a slightly spooky mission for candy. Ages 2-5. (Sept.)
Publishers Weekly
On the flip side, Two Little Witches: A Counting Story (1996) by Harriet Ziefert, illus. by Simms Taback, uses an ever-growing group of trick-or-treaters to teach addition skills. Taback's outlined characters stand out like black-light images against an inky black background.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1-A simple counting story for group sharing and beginning readers. One little witch plus another little witch add (one at a time) a clown, skeleton, striped cat, and so forth, to their retinue until there are "ten trick-or-treaters going trick-or-treating in the dark on Halloween night." Encountering a monster at a spooky old house, all scatter until only the two little witches remain. One rides off on her broomstick and the other walks home and counts her treats, leaving none. The text is simple and the addition predictable, ideal for novice mathematicians. The phrases "going trick-or-treating" and "in the dark on Halloween night" are used repeatedly, but do not build a strong rhythm or invite children to join in the oral reading, as does Sue Alexander's Who Goes Out on Halloween? (Bantam, 1990). Taback's large, primitive, watercolor-and-ink cartoons are especially delightful, though, both spooky with bold uses of black backgrounds and reassuringly familiar with the obviously homemade costumes. And Ziefert's surprise ending is a nice bonus.-Claudia Cooper, Ft. Stockton Independent School District, TX
