Reviews

"Charming full-bleed watercolor illustrations featuring cheerful zombies, ghouls, and an assortment of adorable monsters combine with comforting rhyming text to create a playful Halloween outing that is sure to please little monsters everywhere. Recommended for collections and perfect for seasonal storytime." --School Library Journal

"Told in rollicking rhymes, the story delivers humorous, not-too-scary chills for youngest readers. The portrayal of a warm, patient relationship between child and father is welcome, as is the sight of a parent accompanying a child on nighttime trick-or-treating rounds, not universally presented in Halloween books. The delightful, expressive, atmospheric illustrations depict adorable, multicolored monsters--it's definitely a diverse neighborhood...Treat little ones to this sweet, entertaining holiday story." --Kirkus Reviews

"Much of the humor derives from Leick's jaunty watercolors, in which paws, clawed feet, and fangs protrude from the already outlandish young monsters' elaborate costumes...The frights and assurances continue until a cemetery romp suddenly turns the tables on father-son fright quotients, making for a sweet but sudden conclusion." --Publishers Weekly
