when the moon was bright,
Mouse crept around,
and this is what he found....
"Flit! Flit! Flit!" Something flying. "Rustle! Rustle! Rustle!" Something moving. "Creep! Creep! Creep!" Something sneaking. What can all these things be? Mouse finds out that first impressions can be misleading as, one by one, his fears are assuaged by the appearance of some not-so-scary things: swooping, smiling bats; pretty, tumbling leaves; and scampering kittens. Rich, autumnal colors, full of giant shadows and adorable critters, and rhythmic, repetitive, reassuring text by the creators of Mouse's First Christmas, add up to a gentle Halloween tale ideal for the very youngest trick-or-treater. With just the right balance of creepiness and lighthearted fun, Mouse's First Halloween is ideal for children who are not quite ready for the horrors and gore of some of the more bloodthirsty Halloween stories. Buket Erdogan's endearing illustrations are sure to put anyone in the right mood for the spookiest night of the year.
