4.0 out of 5 stars Halloween Night, October 7, 2008
This review is from: Halloween Night (Hardcover)
Murray, Marjorie Dennis. Halloween Night. Illustrations by Brandon Dorman. HarperCollinsPublishers. 2008.

This is a delightful Halloween version of "The Night Before Christmas". "'Twas Halloween night, and all through the house Every creature was stirring, including the mouse; The walls were aflutter with little brown bats, While hordes of black spiders crept out of the cracks." The digital art illustrations are vibrant, rich in colors and diverse perspectives, and filled with humorous creepy creatures and gorgeous bugs inside a spooky haunted house. In a nice twist, the scary tricksters that include a fairy blowing bubblegum are scared away by the inhabitants of the haunted house, "From the ten little tricksters came ten little shrieks, And away they all ran down the cobblestone street, Dropping their bags and spilling their treats." This wonderful picture book is a perfect read-aloud for a Halloween story time.

The premise of this book sounds very familiar - like my book, The Night Before Halloween! If you're looking for a similar book in an affordable paperback price, check mine out. Or buy them both to compare the stories. Would make for a fun classroom activity.The Night Before Halloween
