Kindergarten-Grade 3—"'Twas Halloween night, and all through the house/Every creature was stirring, including the mouse." With text echoing the classic Christmas poem, the opening spread features a brightly lit mansion and pulls even the most reluctant readers into this holiday story. Out come bats, spiders, witches, ogres, ghosts, and banshees, all excitedly preparing a spectacular buffet for young trick-or-treaters. Their work backfires, however, when the children peek into the spooky house: "But what they saw on that shadowy night/Made each little trickster shiver with fright!" Murray's smooth rhyming text combines well with Dorman's vibrant and extraordinarily detailed digital art, with surprises on every page. This is an energetic romp with a satisfying conclusion that will be a fun read-aloud for wide-eyed children anxiously awaiting the holiday.—Lee Bock, Glenbrook Elementary School, Pulaski, WI

The story is kind of creepy- with REAL ghouls and ghosts and body part pictures. Illustrated, of course, but still kind of creepy. The story is fun, though, and the pictures are great. My kids really enjoy reading this. It's just that in a lot of Halloween stories, the ghouls, ghosts, and goblins turn out to be people dressed up like them, or they end with everyone getting along. At the end of this book, the kids run away scared to death, while the scary guys end their party.
Soooooo, the moral of this story is: This book is kind of creepy, but fun for older kids!
