Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

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

By Kirsten G. Cutler on October 7, 2008
Format: Hardcover
Murray, Marjorie Dennis. Halloween Night. Illustrations by Brandon Dorman. HarperCollinsPublishers. 2008.

This is a delightful Halloween version of "The Night Before Christmas". "'Twas Halloween night, and all through the house Every creature was stirring, including the mouse; The walls were aflutter with little brown bats, While hordes of black spiders crept out of the cracks." The digital art illustrations are vibrant, rich in colors and diverse perspectives, and filled with humorous creepy creatures and gorgeous bugs inside a spooky haunted house. In a nice twist, the scary tricksters that include a fairy blowing bubblegum are scared away by the inhabitants of the haunted house, "From the ten little tricksters came ten little shrieks, And away they all ran down the cobblestone street, Dropping their bags and spilling their treats." This wonderful picture book is a perfect read-aloud for a Halloween story time.

A great book to get into the Halloween Spirit! The story is very cute, and the illustrations are gorgeous. My kids made me read it several times in a row, lingering over all the details in the drawings.

My four-year-old daughter LOVED this book. The pictures are wonderful and it has just the right blend of gross/spooky and delightful- perfect for preschoolers and up! We checked this out at the library, but now I'm buying it for our permanent collectiong.

ISBN 0061351873 - Manufactured in China. Library Binding, 29 pages. Published by Greenwillow Books in 2008. By Marjorie Dennis Murray, illustrated by Brandon Dorman. Marked for ages 5 to 9.

I'm always a happy reader when it's time for a new round of holiday-themed kids' books and starting this Halloween-reading-season with this particular book makes me extra happy!

Told in smooth-as-silk rhyming text, a witch and various friends prepare for a party on Halloween night, readying their haunted house for the trick-or-treaters who, once they get a glimpse, flee in fright!

First off, shame on me for missing this book for several years! There are so very many so-so Halloween books out there and those I find by the hundreds, but somehow the best of them allude me at first, and Halloween Night is among the best so far. The story, like many others, is clearly modeled on the "'Twas the Night Before Christmas" style. Others, however, fail where Murray succeeds. The rhyme actually flows so well that there's almost no way to avoid the built-in cadence when you read, aloud or to yourself: there's nothing clunky or trying-too-hard here! The story has a little creepy/scary edge to it, but not enough to genuinely frighten young kids, and the almost comedic running-away-in-fear reaction of the kids in the story breaks the tension nicely.

Add in the absolutely flawless and positively immense illustrations by Dorman and I'm in love. Each image takes up a full two-page spread, and every inch is used to capture the moment.

A Kid's Review on December 7, 2009
Format: Hardcover
This book has well-written rhymes and INCREDIBLE artwork. There's so much to see that reading it to a room of kindergarteners took forever because they had to examine every detail of every page and comment. And every page is worth taking a good, long look. It had a great flow to the writing, too. This is a year-round must-read/must-look.

I am not one to write reviews often, but just had to let anyone wondering about this book know that my two year old got it for his birthday in September and ever since then, I think we are asked to read it a minimum of 3 or 4 times a day. The illustrations are wonderful, every time we see something new in the pages. An easy read and fun for all ages. You will not be disappointed by this book!

my 4year old son loves this book, we read it every night for the month of October to get him in the spirit of Halloween. He loved the story, the pictures and the crickets on ice. Great book for a spunky kid. Highly recommended!

My obsession for Halloween is being passed along to my 3-week old child with the addition of this book to her Halloween book collection. I've already read it a couple of times, and It's actually a really good read even for adults.
