Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Jesse and his family are preparing for the big day. They head off to the country to select a pumpkin at Panda Pete's Pumpkin Patch. Papa does the honors, but Jesse gets to scoop out the pumpkin seeds. Then its time to select a costume and when Jesse puts on his monster mask and looks in the mirror,he gives himself a fright. Off to trick or treat, Jesse doesn't wear his mask, but when they arrive at a friendly neighbors house, he decides that he is brave enough to wear it and maybe even play a little trick on grandma and grandpa. A pleasant story that will resonate with young kids who may have some misgivings about all of the Halloween hoopla and costumed monsters roaming the neighborhood.
Kirkus Reviews
In a bouncing rhyme, Jesse Bear (Let's Count It Out, Jesse Bear, 1996, etc.) celebrates Halloween. As usual, Jesse has the niftiest of festivities while solving a very typical child difficulty. He goes with his parents and grandmother to pick their own pumpkin, comes home to carve it, and then goes up to the attic. It's a veritable treasure trove of stuff, and Papa and Mama dress up in vampire fangs and tutu. Jesse is overcome by his own scary mask, but is soon reassured by the familiarity of neighbors, parents, and friends in costume. Pumpkin lights festoon a trellis, neighbors sing a "wobbly goblin song," and Jesse and his parents go home to a feast made by his grandparents. It's a dream Halloween, indeed. (Picture book. 3-6)
