Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 1-Cronin and Lewin have teamed up again to bring Farmer Brown and his clever barnyard animals back for a Halloween read-aloud. Farmer Brown leaves a bowl of candy on the porch, locks up the house, puts up a "Do Not Disturb" sign, and prepares to sleep through the holiday, but his animals have other plans for the evening. The repeated use of onomatopoeia successfully sets the mood for a crunching, creaking, tapping-filled night as the man is kept awake by the noise. When he spies a dark, lurking figure through the window, he realizes that his animal friends are at it again. His candy has disappeared and a new note appears on his door-"Halloween Party at the Barn!" Lewin's broad, black lines and watercolor paintings add just the right amount of shadow and spookiness to complement the simple text, creating a story that is creepy enough for Halloween storyhours, but not enough to scare young listeners. Fans of this creative team's other barnyard adventures will not be surprised to learn the identity of the caped figure responsible for the revelry and will enjoy this Halloween treat.-Kristine M.

From Booklist

Not everybody likes Halloween. Like many small children, Farmer Brown finds its sights and sounds downright terrifying. He copes by leaving a bowl of candy on the porch and a “DO NOT DISTURB” sign on the door. But that night, someone creaks across his porch, swipes his candy, and hammers a “HALLOWEEN PARTY at the barn!” poster onto his door. Incensed, Farmer Brown investigates, only to discover that he has won an unexpected honor. A holiday-themed picture book in the series that began with the Caldecott Honor Book Click, Clack, Moo (2000), this sequel features many of the qualities that have made the books so popular: a concise text with a storyteller’s sense of sound and rhythm, strong and expressive brush-and-watercolor illustrations that show up well from a distance, and Farmer Brown’s push-pull relationship with Duck, his independent-minded antagonist. A somewhat spooky, decidedly droll read-aloud choice for October. Preschool-Grade 2. --Carolyn Phelan

The story line kept my child's attention.

Children who love her others will enjoy this Halloween tale and it could help those children who might be slightly afraid of this scary night.

I have been eagerly anticipating this new book! Any time the team of Cronin and Lewin gets together, I just know to expect a winner, and they have not disappointed! The youngest readers will love the adventure of the story: they can relate to the Halloween jim-jams and shivers experienced by the long-suffering Farmer Brown. Parents who are thoughtful readers will linger over the incredible artwork; I spent a long time on each page, and am still astounded by the detail the illustrator puts into each picture. Their love for their young readers always comes through from Doreen Cronin and Betsy Lewin, and I for one appreciate it!

If you're a fan of this series, this is worth picking up (particularly if you can pick it up through your child's book flyer rather than full price). It's cute and clever, but I wouldn't say it's as funny as the others in the series. Fun for Halloween, but doesn't have as much value for rereading as the others.

My daughter fell in love with this series, and she absolutely loves Click, Clack, Boo! I found it just in time for Halloween, and it's not scary like some Halloween books can be for kids.

The story is okay but leaves something to be desired at the end, however the illustrations are nice. My 3 1/2 year old likes it but I always embellish the ending.

Last October I borrowed a copy of this to read to my (then) 1 year old son for Halloween. He loved it! And every night for months he requested it for our bedtime reading. I finally had to return the borrowed copy and buy one. He's now 19 months and still pulls it off the shelf for a read every few days. Great book!

My son is a 6yr old avid reader! He reads this book by himself, although for the younger kids, it's a great story for parents to read to their child. The story line kept my child's attention. My only dislike is that this book is only available in stores during halloween. I had to order from Amazon to get it for a Christmas present.
