First and foremost - I simply love Halloween and am always on the hunt for good Halloween books. This book did not disappoint. The illustrations are excellent and the rhyme is the same cadence as with Goodnight, Moon. Adults who love Halloween and kids who love Goodnight, Moon will all equally enjoy this book.
Every page is chockful of images to peruse and discover. FUN images that are still spooky, scary and frightful without being overly gruesome for little brains. I see this being a classic for our family for years to come.
Also, check out Michael Rex's new Runaway Mummy: A Petrifying Parody for a hilarious Halloween scream!
It would be a cute gift for a 1 or 2 year old boy :)
Children's stories tend to revolve around a theme, message, or character, and while buying "holiday" books may seem a bit redundant, as you tend to only read them around that holiday, this book is an exception to that rule. With the popularity of vampires, werewolves, and other other-worldly creatures in today's culture, this book is one that you can read any time of the year, not just around Halloween.
I would consider the age range for this book to be anywhere between 3 & 9. Younger children will love having this story read to them, and older children will enjoy reading this story for themselves. This book is a great addition to any childhood library, especially for fans of "Goodnight Moon".
