Editorial Reviews

From the Author

When I was asked to write this story, I was stuck until a fellow writer suggested I look at it from the monsters' point of view - it was their big holiday. So I wrote this fun take on monsters getting their haunted house ready for trick-or-treaters and throwing a Halloween night party.

About the Author

Natasha Wing still gets dressed up and goes out for Halloween. She lives in Colorado.

More About the Author

Natasha Wing was born in Connecticut and now lives in Fort Collins, Colorado. After graduating from Arizona State University she then worked in advertising for a number of years. It wasn't until 1991 that she decided to write children's books. Luckily she sold her first book within six months and has been writing children's books and articles ever since. Some of her books have even ended up on bestseller lists, including the wildly popular The Night Before series.

"I'm curious about many things- people, holidays, underdogs, little known historic figures - and translate my excitement for a topic into books for kids to enjoy. Story ideas are popping into my head all the time, so you never know what my next book will be. But that's what's so fun about writing."

Format: Paperback
My 2 1/2 year old just loves Halloween. He was born Oct. 28th so he's definitely a Halloween baby and he loves everything to do with the holiday including seeing pumpkins, bats and spiders. This delightful book by Natasha Wing is a Halloween takeoff on "Twas the Night Before Christmas" following the same pattern except that in this book various ghouls and goblins are preparing for Halloween and for the children who will soon be knocking at their front door. The Illustrations by Cynthia Fisher perfectly fit the fun tone and pace of the book and my little loves reading this one over and over...

The idea of the monsters getting ready for Haloween was great. I loved the book. I bought 10 copies and gave them to friends and relatives. They had received the Night Before Easter Book and were looking forward to the continuation of the next Night Before series. We are anxiously awaiting The Night Before Valentines Day.

Format: Paperback
My 4 year old is OBSESSED with halloween, so trust me - we've read just about every halloween picture book and early chapter book that we can get our hands on.

"The Night Before Halloween", is told in the same rhyming verse as "The Night Before Christmas" story; and follows the monsters as they prepare for Halloween. The verse is easy for kids to follow and the illustrations are colorful and detailed. This book has become a quick favorite for us to read at bedtime.

I would absolutely recommend adding this to your Halloween book list. Also check out "Room on the Broom" by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler - this is another of our favorites this year.

I read this aloud to a class of first graders and they enjoyed the fun ryhming text and colorful illustrations. They were familiar with the similar Christmas story, so were interested in seeing how the Halloween version would play out. My very young grandson loves the story and pictures, too!

I bought this for my daughter before Halloween. It's really a cute story and builds on Halloween excitement. The illustrations are well done and it's short enough to keep attention.
