Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 2-A ghostly narrator tells six not-so-scary Halloween stories that beginning readers will enjoy. The first tale features two greedy trick-or-treaters who are tricked by a witch and a ghost. Next, sibling rivalry goes unchecked when Baby Bibble disappears as Sally Bibble scribbles the child's image with a special pen. In another selection, a tap-tap-tapping sound fuels the grim imaginations of two brothers until the elder boy removes a branch hitting the window, producing a temporary quiet. Librarians will rejoice in the story of mean Bill, who steals the book his sister is reading, and leaves it under his bed. Because it is haunted, it cries out to be returned to the library, prompting the boy to take it back the next morning, still in his pajamas. These charming tales conclude with the ghost requesting readers to share the book with a friend, and to write their own stories. Adinolfi's illustrations provide contextual clues with friendly cartoon fiends depicted in bright colors and a variety of skin tones. A treat for emerging readers.
