It's Halloween Night! Paperback – July 1, 2012
"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

PreS-K-Five young trick-or-treaters are preparing for Halloween. Two eyes are cut out of a sheet and face paint is applied to a little boy's nose. One costume is complete with the addition of a black cat, another with the application of hair gel and a ketchup drop. Simple rhyming sentences ("It's Halloween night. My costume's just right./With my satin gown and golden crown,/I'm a ...") and colorful, uncluttered illustrations give clues to the costume, but the answer isn't revealed until the page is turned. Children can find stars, spiders, bats, and pumpkins hidden in the backgrounds of each colorful spread. This not-so-scary Halloween book is filled with smiles and treats.-Tanya Boudreau, Cold Lake Public Library, AB, Canadaα(c) Copyright 2011.

Each kid prepares a scary costume for being a fright on Halloween night in this story, which features a simple rhyme and brightly colored double-page spreads. A girl has a pointy hat and a spooky cat; turn the page, and she is a witch. Then there is a ghoul, a bear, and a smiling vampire with scary fangs and pointy bangs (made up with ketchup and hair gel). Finally, the costumed kids gather to ring a doorbell and yell “Trick or treat,” smiling together. The dress-up play, described in both the words and pictures, will make this a lively choice for Halloween sharing with young children. Preschool-Kindergarten. --Hazel Rochman
