VINE VOICEon September 18, 2008
Format: Paperback
This story is told in repetitive verse which tends to capture the attention of young children. It is similar in structure to "the house that Jack built", where each sentence repeats and then builds upon the previous sentence to tell the story. This story follows Emily as she gets dressed in her costume for Halloween.

Overall, the sing-songy kind of rhyme was good, and the illustrations were colorful and fun, but the story itself didn't hold much excitement for my 4yo. We borrowed this from the library, and it only got one read before we returned it.

For a book with a similar story format but more of an interesting plot, I would recommend "Inside a House That Is Haunted" by Alyssa Satin Capucilli and Tedd Arnold.

We ordered this book for a school gift at Halloween. We read the book to the kids and they loved it. A great story for either girls or boys.

By the time my 4-year-old and I get to the middle of this book, he's laughing so hard we have to take a break! It's a Halloween version of the old "House that Jack Built" story from Mother Goose. It's wonderfully adorable and very engaging for kids!

This book has become a favorite of my 5 month old as well as my 9 year old. It has a fun rhyming nature and very cute illustrations.

This book is very cute for Halloween. The repetition is good for developing early reading skills.

My kids love this book. It builds on repetition to help children with reading. My kids love to read it even when it's not Halloween

I had high hopes for this after reading the other positive reviews but, unfortunately, this book fell quite short. We ordered about a dozen childrens books for Halloween and this one was the worst, by far. The scratchy illustrations and annoying, repetitive, rhyme wore thin on my wife and I before we even made it through half the book. I know my 1 star review is in the minority of reviews for this book but this book was simply bad; there are so many other great books out there, I'd suggest you spend your money elsewhere.
