Editorial Reviews

Review

"This is a book for group sharing and joining in. Children will sing and dance and chant the refrain as they shake their bones with the hip-hop rhyming words and swirling pictures." Booklist, ALA

“The rhythm is infectious. . . . This should keep the storytime set jiggling to the last scoo-bee-doo-bee-doo-wah. Yeah!” Horn Book

From the Back Cover

It's Halloween night.

The city is quiet.

The city is still.

But as the lights go down,

the music comes up --

and the guests start to arrive

at the hip-hop Halloween ball!

Join Li'l Red Riding Hood, Goldilocks, Tom Thumb, and all of their friends for a rapping, stomping, shaking Halloween romp!

I work in a Nursery School and the children get pretty antsy around Halloween. This one kept them all quiet and focusing on
the book. They LOVED it- I had to reread it again, and the other classes in our school had me come into their classes and read this story.
Very imaginative and all the words rhyme!! I love books that have a beat and the words rhyme like this.
Enjoy-

This book is a halloween treat! I've read it over and over to my 19 month old who absolutly loves this book! The pictures are bright and silly, but most of all its a lot of fun to read! Other family members and friends have read it to her as well and they love the book as much as us! The words are in a sing-songy rhythm - you cant help but bounce around as you read this! I would (and have) recomended this book to everyone I know!

Fantastic book for ALL ages. I am a teacher of middle school students and I read this book to them, as well as my son's 1st grade class, AS WELL as a 1st grade class in the school at which I teach, AS WELL as my 3 year old son (many times to him I might add!!) They all loved it! It has a fantastic rhythm as well as references to favorite fairy tale characters.

This book is fantastic for young and old alike. Two year olds love the imaginitive pictures and the rhythmic text. Eight year olds love to see familiar fairy tale characters in a new light. Adults enjoy reading the fun lyrics. It's a great Halloween tale for the whole family.

I purchased this book based on the reviews, which I normally find very helpful especially when most readers all feel strongly about a book. I don't know if it was just the mood we were in or our taste is just different on this one, but nobody in our family thought it was very good (me, my husband, our 4 year old, an uncle, a cousin...) and it just failed to capture us. My child loves Halloween and books, and she had us read it once and NEVER asked for it again.

I know almost all the other reviews are really positive, but we just didn't feel the same way.

I am a retired elementary principal that has been called back every year to read this book to my former K-2 students. They not only love the story, but it is an excellent teaching oportunity for our reading classes as we compare the characters in this book to characters in previously read children's books. I highly recommend it for any elementary classroom.

I heard this book being read to an elementary music class and just loved it. They were told to rap out the reprise every time it occurred. The children loved it and were having so much fun. This book it about a Halloween ball and the guests at the ball. The guests include nursery rhyme and fairy tale characters. The illustrations are terrific as well.
