Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 2-5-Embellished with scary, fantastical illustrations, this book will appeal to the "Goosebumps" (Scholastic) crowd. Included are 28 original poems and limericks of uneven quality that are not quite up to the standard of Hubbell's earlier work. Some of the better poems include "Cat Curfew," "Bones," and "Phantom Squirrel," all illustrated with perfect spookiness. Serving apple pie made of slugs and a "cold puree of bugs" drink, "Halloween Diner" is sufficiently gross to delight even the most jaded youngster. Spread across single and double pages, the acrylic paintings are filled with horrifying creatures going about the business of being frightening. All in all, a good addition to shelves where Halloween books are in great demand.-Judith Constantinides, East Baton Rouge Parish Main Library, LA
