5.0 out of 5 stars Happy Halloween Newman..., September 27, 2002
This review is from: Halloween (Collector's Edition with CD) (Hardcover)
Jerry Seinfeld's standup routine on halloween is one of my favorite pieces of art ever. It is truly art if you look at it, his entire career is an art form that takes such simple everyday stuff and makes it unbelievably funny. His work is nothing short of brilliant and Halloween captures that brilliance in a childrens book.
The book itself may be geared for children, at least it appears so, but I think that an older audience would benefit more from reading this. As i mentioned, I love his standup bit on halloween and seeing illustrations to go along with the words was something I felt was really unique and interesting. The pictures themselves were very playful and properly done, nothing too fancy but they fit the mood.
I think this book would make a unique addition to a childs library. For a young person, it would be a bit of an educational experience as well being humorous. I don't know how to support the educational statement exactly, I just think that in order for youngsters to get the most out of this book, they have to think differently about it than other books they are used to.
I think the general idea for Halloween by Jerry Seinfeld was for everyone to just enjoy the hell out of it. I guarantee that no matter what age you are, you can pick this book up, relate to it, smile a lot and just be happy you took my advice. No trick....this ones a real treat.
