Reviewed by Mamta Madhavan for Readers' Favorite Halloween Ride: A Gregory Green Adventure by Elaine Kaye, as the title suggests, has Halloween as its backdrop. Gregory Green and Sammy, his teddy bear, hope to get a lot of candy that Halloween night. Gregory is dressed as a pirate and Sammy is wearing a costume Gregory wore when he was young; an orange pumpkin with a smiling face. They go around with their plastic candy buckets. They have a few pieces of candy but they want more. They both love to yell 'trick-or-treat' at every door. Once it's dark, everything looks spooky and Sammy thinks there is a ghost in the sky. As they start walking, they see a broom at the bottom of the tree. Their magical journey begins from there and takes young readers on a wonderful adventure filled with fantasy and imagination. This is a perfect story for children and it will make them imagine, dream, and become adventurous. The illustrations are whimsical and they bring out the spookiness and eeriness of the adventure. It is a good book to use for storytelling sessions during Halloween and children will love to have an adventure like Gregory and Sammy and fly around on a broom and meet the witch. I like the way the author knits reality and whimsy together and makes the adventure even more captivating and exciting for readers. Though part of a series, the book can stand on its own and is still appealing with its own touch of enchantment and magic.

This is a sweet, trick or treating adventure with a special twist of Halloween magic as sweet as candy corn. Gregory and his bear, Sammy, put on their costumes, and with Mom's instructions, head out to trick or treat. But things are spookier than usual on Halloween night. Soon, the shadows reveal surprises and the two wonder if they are as brave as they thought. But when one shadow reveals a broom stick, the magic begins. While this book belongs to a series of books, each one is a separate story and can easily be read alone. The excitement of heading out alone for the very first time to go trick or treating comes to life in these pages. Gregory and Sammy, a teddy bear who is more than his stuffing and string, are nervous but mostly excited as they head out into the night. The mother's instructions fit perfectly to the situation—only go to the houses where she can see them from the window. Even though this sounds very safe, the two still find themselves in thick adventures, which shows how wonderful the imagination can be. It's easy to relate to the two as they meet their own fears, ones many kids share when their imaginations get the better of them. And the twist of magical fun toward the end, adds a wonderful adventure kids can dream of. It's a lovely balance between reality and fantasy. This book borders between a picture book and something children, who have gotten a better grip on words, can read on their own. The vocabulary is generally kept simple enough for more sure readers to attack, and the length fits perfectly as well. As a picture book, it's great for the slightly older audience (ages five and up) due to the length. But it makes a wonderful read aloud for this age group. The illustrations are bright and simple but add just the right touch to make the book fun to flip through. It's an entertaining read, which kids can identify with before heading out on their own trick or treating adventure. I received a complimentary copy and enjoyed it enough to want to leave my honest thoughts. I'm giving it 4.5 stars and rounding up.

Gregory Green and his trust sidekick, Sammy, his talking teddy bear, are ready for a Halloween adventure. Gregory is a pirate while Sammy is a pumpkin. It’s a bird, it’s a plane, no, it’s Gregory and Sammy on their flying broom. They soar to the moon and back again. Halloween Ride is a funfilled story of illustrated pictures that will capture any child’s eye as Gregory and Sammy soar higher and higher, showing no fear. I voluntarily reviewed a free copy of Halloween Ride by Elaine Kaye.
