Grade 3–8—Perfect for Halloween and beyond, this conveniently organized, well-illustrated cookbook is sure to be a crowd-pleaser. Following a somewhat lengthy introduction explaining Halloween fun from the author's perspective and "pointers for success" in using the book, Bowers dives in to the heart of the matter. Arrangement is by types of food (candy, cookies, cakes, drinks, etc.), and it's easy to find something to whet any appetite for scary fun. The I'Scream Cake is reminiscent of Edvard Munch's The Scream. Monster Eyeballs and Cheddar Eyeballs are more mouthwatering than icky. Ghoul-Ade with Fly-in-My-Ice is gloriously spine-chilling. While most recipes start from scratch, Bowers allows for substitutions such as store-bought cake mixes. Most recipes are complemented by a full-color photograph of the finished product. While young children will not be able to create these fright-fest delights without intense adult help, they will nevertheless howl at the promise of the outcome. Hauntingly appetizing.—Anne Chapman Callaghan, Racine Public Library, WI END
