Ollie's Halloween (reader) (Gossie & Friends) Paperback – July 19, 2016
"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.

PreS-Gr 1–Ollie and his siblings are back for some Halloween fun. Outfitted in adorable costumes–wizard, chicken, dragon, bunny, and mummy–they traipse around the farm looking for adventure and candy. They prowl, hoot, howl, creep, and gobble treats. They race for the barn as a storm blows in and, in the end, remember that Halloween is a perfect night for sharing. This tale follows the style of Dunrea's other gosling books with simple but amusing text at the bottom of every page and clear, entertaining, and detailed illustrations above. The book concludes with a perforated fold-out poster that tears out easily. This low-key story is a great addition to the Gossie and friends books and will work well in storytime.–Catherine Callegari, Gay-Kimball Library, Troy, NH. (c) Copyright 2010.

Praise for Gossie&Friends books:
Gossie and Gossie&Gertie
"...the focus on Ollie's childlike anticipation is right on target. Dunrea's graceful ink drawings and beautiful washes offer an appealing alternative to more complex, but less satisfying Christmas picture books" —Booklist
"Remaining true to his uncomplicated watercolor style, Dunrea maintains an element of charm to Ollie's waiting, depicting his impatience as sweet and subdued, rather than manic and obsessed. Parents and children will immediately relate to this youngster's excitement." —School Library Journal
Gossie & Friends: A First Flap Book
"A wonderful addition to Gossie collections." —Kirkus Reviews
2006 Nick Jr. Family Magazine Best Books of the Year
