This will end up in many storytime stacks all year long. A warm and cuddly celebration of the creepiest holiday.
Patricelli honestly explores the frights and excitements that Halloween first-timers often feel, but she keeps the dial firmly set to fun.
The lively color-saturated illustrations play off the simple, direct text, adding humor and silliness to the mix. Two interactive double-page spreads—“How should we carve our jack-o’- lantern?” and “What should I be?”— involve young listeners in the fun and prep newbies for these holiday highlights.

Another winner for Patricelli. She has cleverly crafted a tale about a lovable preschooler celebrating another favorite holiday.
