Jeoffry's Halloween Hardcover – September 3, 2003
"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

Kindergarten-Grade 3-The endearing feline from Jeoffry's Christmas (Farrar, 2002) and his dog companion cross through gardens, over hills and dales, through golden fields of corn and sunflowers, on through patches of huge pumpkins, to a geese-filled pond. They arrive at the farm gate just in time to follow two trick-or-treaters on their Halloween night trek. Painterly artwork done in soft, autumn-hued pastels creates a dreamy adventure for the Goblin and the Witch. Just as "Ghouls glide round the prickly tops-/only squirrels flying by,/dropping nutshells from the sky," the startled children lose their flashlight. In perfect rhythmic verse, Jeoffry becomes the hero: "I'll be the Witch and Goblin's scout/and find a way to lead them out." This unique Halloween story will mesmerize listeners and independent readers alike. A glossary helps with unfamiliar words like "copse," "lichen," and "tupelo."
