Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 1–Using the framework and rhythms of This Is the House That Jack Built, Hatch constructs a cumulative chain of events that begins with a mouse hiding inside a jack-o'-lantern. Each successive character that arrives on the scene–a bat, an owl, a cat, a costumed child, and a dog–adds a complicating layer until the pooch finally trips the trick-or-treater, spilling the candy, scattering the figures, and leaving the merry mouse in possession of the treats. Hatch's lively text is matched by the quirky full-color art. Using changes in perspective, an elastic line, an appropriately spooky font style, and a sure hand for depicting action, Pickering drenches the spreads in dark blues, purples, greens, and reds. Libraries looking for a slightly scary tale will want to consider this one.–Marge Loch-Wouters, Menasha's Public Library, WI

Format: Hardcover
Halloween Night is Hatch's first work, and although clever, it's not original. Several others have borrowed the same beat in a Halloween book, This is the House that Jack Built, well before this work was published. While the rhythm for Halloween Night is unoriginal, the artwork is innovative. The paintings are saturated in deep hues: blues, greens, oranges, and reds, and although the illustrations are rich in color, they are not dark and creepy. The pictures are happy, humorous, and carry a wonderful comic expression. This is a short book that's fun to read aloud, and is most appropriated by the 2 to 5 crowd. It takes less then a minute to read from cover to cover, but I like to read it with emphasis, so it takes me a bit longer. The writing flows and the word selections are appropriate for the age group. Halloween Night is a cheerful choice for the young ones.

My girls love this book! They love the funny tale and the rythmic style. The illustrations are very clever and wonderful. I have given this as a gift to several friends.
