9780060281854: A Know-Nothing Halloween (I Can Read Books)

It's Halloween and the Know-Nothings want to celebrate. They want to trick-or-treat and bob for apples, but they don't know anyone named Bob and they don't know any tricks!

The four silly friends' adventures on Halloween night and their comic interpretations of the popular holiday make this book a perfect treat for beginning readers.

About the Author:

Michele Sobel Spirn has written more than seventy books, videos, and filmstrips for children, as well as several award-winning films for adults. She lives in Brooklyn, NY.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 2-The Know-Nothings are back for more wacky fun. In the first title, Boris, Morris, Norris, and Doris try to celebrate Halloween, but misunderstandings turn ordinary events into humorous escapades. They never do find "Bob" of "bob for apples" fame, and the best trick they can muster is for Floris the dog to stand on four legs. Their misadventures continue in the second book as they plan a parade and dinner in honor of Thanksgiving. Children will especially enjoy the foursome's attempts to catch a wild turkey by acting wild themselves as well as their unsuccessful attempts to "serve" it. The large print and simple texts are just right for new readers and the three short chapters in each book are perfectly paced with action and humor. The cartoonlike illustrations suit the foolish friends' zany antics. Filled with the silliness that many youngsters love, these easy-readers will serve as additional holiday fare.
