My oldest has developed a fondness for “scaries.” If we are out shopping, he insists on visiting the Halloween aisles to look at all the “scaries.” And I do mean all of them. Halloween costumes and decorations and supplies thrill him to the core. Since books are also important to him, and I’m not a complete Halloween Scrooge, I wanted to procure a small collection appropriate for the season. Turns out, good Halloween books are hard to come by. We’ve found a few happy favorites, though. With this one at the top of the list.

As children’s literature goes, it’s not what I would call stellar, but the illustrations are charming, the theme is perfect for the spooky season, and the story instinctively lends itself to fun actions that are repeated and built upon with every turn of the page. Pretty cute, all in all, and we don’t tire of it. My three-year-old has it memorized and still requests it over and over at bedtime. It’s a great selection for the under-7 age group.
I’d like to check out this one, as the illustrations look fantastic and the story sounds clever. Anybody familiar?
