Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

All sizes and shapes of hats--"Floppy hats and sloppy hats, / silly hats and frilly hats"--are put to good use on Halloween night. Elizabeth Winthrop's happy paean to hats begins as three children rummage through an attic to find the perfect costumes for trick-or-treating. Once on the streets, the three revelers see all sorts of getups, including "Hats for fancy race-car drivers, / hats with air for deep-sea divers." All the neighborhood kids, it seems, are headed for the same party, where they play a hat-switching game that results in some very silly costumes indeed. Sue Truesdell's lively illustrations, reminiscent of James Stevenson's work, steal the show as she depicts kids jumping in leaf piles, collecting candy, falling down, and living it up. The sweet, comical details from wide-eyed cats to a tiny Halloween paper ghost taped to a window are what makes this nonscary Halloween book a standout. (Ages 4 to 8) --Karin Snelson

From Publishers Weekly

Three grinning trick-or-treaters raid their attic for "floppy hats and sloppy hats/ silly hats and frilly hats," and emerge in improvised outfits. Outdoors, other children sport "Hats with flaps,/ hats with braids,/ hats for generals in parades." The free-for-all concludes with "a switching game": Everyone trades toques to "be someone new." Truesdell (How to Talk to Your Dog) sketches loose-limbed, leaping children in berets, crowns and turbans. Her breezy, clever drawings, reminiscent of Quentin Blake's, make hay with Winthrop's (Shoes) zippy couplets. Ages 3-7.

By Z Hayes HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on September 13, 2010
Format: Hardcover
"Halloween Hats" is a short yet fun read which follows a group of children as they get ready to go trick or treating, all decked out in their favorite costumes, and yes, hats! The illustrations are colorful and vivid, and complement the simple text. My kindergartener loved the last couple of pictures where the children are all involved in a game of grab someone else's hat which resulted in lots of giggles and squeals as we both enjoyed the illustrations. It's a simple yet fun Halloween read which makes for great reading aloud.
