Halloween reviews

Trick or Treat
by Leo Landry
Houghton Mifflin Books for Children
August 2012

 Just a fun party, hosted by a ghost! Witches unwittingly provide broom rides, and skeletons provide the music for two unexpected guests: two kids dressed as a cow and a jack o' lantern for Halloween. Nice and simple, this book should get you in the mood for Halloween.

I borrowed this book from the library.

The Monsters' Monster
by Patrick McDonnell
Little Brown Books for Young Readers
September 2012

This is just about the cutest Frankenstein I've ever seen. Hoping to make the biggest, baddest, scariest monster of all time, Grouch, Grump and two-headed monster, Gloom n' Doom fashion a huge monster, bringing it to life in an electrical storm. Problem is, (just like the original Frankenstein's monster) this guy is nothing but a gentle giant who enjoys sunshine, jelly donuts and days on the beach. Perfect as a not-too-scary Halloween story, or any time of year.
