Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

In this hair-raising tour of a mansion and cornfield, readers confront creatures of the night. Druce (Witch, Witch Come to My Party) generates suspense with rhyming questions that are answered with a trembling turn of the page. A diaphanous form lurks behind a broken window ("Who can walk through closed doors/ with a thud and a thump?/ `I can,' said the ghost"), bats swoop and a skeleton emerges from a crypt. Wenzel's (The Christmas Path) naturalistic watercolors and tilted fields of vision enhance the unsettling ambience. Ages 4-8.

From School Library Journal

K-Gr 2-Riddles introduce the characters associated with Halloween, including a witch ("On Halloween Night/when it's dark and scary/who can swoop through the air/with a swish and a flurry?") and a jack-o'-lantern ("On a darkened porch/when the moon is low/who can light a smile/with a shine and a glow?"). Watercolor illustrations of haunted houses, graveyards, ghosts, and trick-or-treating children establish an appropriately spooky mood; however, the occasionally awk-ward rhymes can make reading aloud difficult.

Rising Moon Publishing is well known for its beautiful children's books, and they continue to raise the bar with this holiday offering for young children. A simple Halloween story that invites young people to respond is "costumed" with full page illustrations that are rich in color and activity. This is a great book to read to young people throughout October in anticipation of Halloween night. The David T. Wenzel illustrations will also appeal to adults who love Halloween and they will want to add this book to their own library.

i bought this for my grandchildren, ages 1-7, and they all loved the story, but the illustrations were fantastic! I won't buy a children's book that doesn't have good illustrations, and this one exceeded my standards. The colors are brilliant and the details are wonderful. There were so many tiny details inserted into each photo that all the kids had fun finding them.

The story is delightful. This book offers the whole experience for Halloween.

Format: Hardcover
Halloween Night is a Who Done It, for little ones. Each page has a poem, and the answer is found on the following page; however, if you look closely, clues to the answers are painted into the scenes. Halloween Night has a playful rhythm that flows, and the watercolor illustrations are bright, and colorful! Arden Druce, the author, doesn't overreach, and she is wonderfully descriptive, "...who can spin shimmering webs with a swirl and a twist?" For a short, 24-page book, this work carries quite an impact. Altogether, there are only 20 sentences, which takes less than 2-minutes to read, but the combination of good writing, and beautifully rendered artwork makes for a fabulous book. Adults will like this book, because it's fun to read aloud without being scary, or violent.
