Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Erdogan's engaging illustrations are perfectly complemented by Laura Thompson's warm and cozy writing style. My preschool students love the "mystery" of trying to figure out just what it is that Mouse is afraid of. Is it blowing leaves, playful cats, or friendly trick-or-treaters? Reading this book opened the door to a simple and accessible conversation with my students about what is "real" and what is "pretend" on Halloween.
A cute mouse encounters some spooky sights on Halloween night, which all turn out to be common things. The pictures are rich in color but amateurish. The text is repetitive, and falls flat after the third time. Littles ones will love it, though.
Children seem to get both excited and scared of Halloween. This story does a nice job of balancing the two with a little bit of suspence followed by a nice laugh. The mouse is such a sweet character.
