"Lovely curvy shapes and autumn colors fade to dusky blues as night falls, and children are sure to notice the traditional elements of a Halloween party: apple bobbing, lit jack-o'-lanterns, and punch and treats. Beloved Little Blue takes a bit of the mystery—and fear—out of Halloween costumes."

When I pre-ordered my copy of the book, there wasn't a product description, so I was happily surprised when I discovered it has flaps which you lift to see what is underneath. The concept is that each of our favorite animals are in the book once again and most are in costume. You lift the flap to see which animal is “hidden” under their mask. I really appreciate that it helps re-enforce animal names while a child has fun with guessing and enjoying the cute costumes. The back page is an entire flip-over page and reveals the biggest costumed entity as well. Don't want to ruin the big surprise but don't be surprised is there are a few “Beep, beep, beeps” to be read.
I purchased one copy thinking it would be enough for both of my grandchildren but, as it turns out, my grandson likes it so well, he wants it kept by the rocking chair in his room at my house. I'll happily purchase a second copy of this (as well as the first two books and the Christmas book in the series) for my granddaughter as well to enjoy once she is old enough. I'll include a copy of photos of my grandson's favorite pages.
This? A few costumes and flip-open reveals. Mediocre rhyme holding it all together. I guess the artwork is pretty good, but that's not enough to salvage the overall experience. The novelty wears off pretty quickly, then you're back to the first book. Did I mention that one's awesome? Total win!
Little Blue Truck needs to get back to his roots and give us something of value. Right now he's just phoning it in.
In my opinion, the other books in this collection aren't good at all. My son only likes the Christmas book, because the tree lights up at the end.
I'm so glad the author went back to the great things we love about the first book.
Love this book! I'm looking forward to reading it again today with my son.
Bottom Line: Fun Halloween book with familiar characters, lesser story than other Little Blue Truck books but same great art with lots happening in each picture.
My son even brings his blue hot wheels truck over by the book when we read sometimes. So that's cute, making connections.
