Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS—This cute, not scary Halloween story opens with Peep the chick, who is dressed as a butterfly and wants to go trick-or-treating. But Egg, also a chick, is scared and hiding behind a hay bale. Peep tries to persuade Egg to come along. Text and illustrations work well together in this lighthearted adventure. Illustrations set a happy, playful tone and are bright, colorful, and friendly. For example, Peep explains that the first place to go trick-or-treating would be the pond. The illustrations show eight ducklings wearing simple costumes. They look like adorable little yellow penguins with red bow ties paddling around in the pond. But Egg says, "Vampires." Next would be the cows, who are wearing black-and-white costumes. But these welcoming cows look like mummies to Egg. Peep finally goes trick-or-treating without his friend. But when it gets dark, Egg changes his mind and runs after Peep, trying to catch up. Egg puts on a caterpillar costume and ends up having fun after all. The tale ends with the friends munching on Halloween candy in the pumpkin patch. VERDICT The large illustrations and simple text make this a solid choice for a preschool storytime on Halloween.—Robin Sofge, Alexandria Library, VA


What's the only thing more adorable than a Joyce Wan character? A Joyce Wan character in a Halloween costume....As in the previous book, when Peep stops trying to persuade Egg to join in the Halloween fun and leaves him to his own devices, he has a change of heart. It's a familiar story of opening oneself up to new experiences, but Gehl's lighthearted dialogue and Wan's chunky, emotive graphics keep it feeling fresh. -Publisher's Weekly, August 2016

Bold colors, thick lines, and strategic use of white space and panels enhance this preschool-friendly tale about overcoming fears (and receiving candy). -Horn Book, Sept/Oct 2016
