This is an adorable book that is the perfect pick for Halloween as it transitions into Thanksgiving.
LOVE LOVE LOVE this book, cannot say enough good things about it for preschool-aged children. I bought this for my daughter for Halloween. The story length was just right for a bedtime book, and she memorized the story quickly. Within days she was reading it together with my husband and I, and we were all laughing out loud. It is a good lesson. I will purchase this book most likely for my nephew and other preschool children next year for Halloween or even Thanksgiving, it works for both.
Cute! A quick read that will end with you saying ... cute. It's nothing fantastic and certainly not a classic Halloween story but "cute".
