Are you ready to trick or treat?You're only ready if you've grabbed a copy of Halloween Night.
Although it reads like The Night Before Christmas...
'Twas Halloween night, and all through the house
Every creature was stirring, including the mouse;
It takes on a life of its own with bats, spiders, witches and zombies who are aflutter for a big Halloween bash. The ghoulish creatures make sure everything's just right from music to drinks to the buffet, but it's the trick-or-treaters who they're really waiting for. When the children finally arrive and yell, 'Trick or Treat,' they're eager to see the Halloween treats, but they're in for a real surprise and one the monsters won't forget.
Halloween Night is a beautifully written picture book in rhyme, sure to be one of the best Halloween books yet. The illustrations by Brandon Dorman are simply jaw dropping and will have your little trick-or-treaters ready to jump into their costumes and swoop through the night.
