Ms. McCully divides her time between New York City and Chatham, New York.From Booklist:
Gr. 1-2, younger for reading aloud. Halloween brings out the worst and the best in the characters from McCully's Grandmas at the Lake (1990) in this simple chapter book in the An I Can Read series. "Be polite," says bossy Grandma Nan. "Be scary," says Grandma Sal. But neither is any good when it comes to trick-or-treating. The children wish both grandmas would go away--until the local bullies try to steal the kids' treats and the monster grandmas show who's boss. McCully's detailed line-and-watercolor illustrations on every page extend the fun with sly affection. Skinny Grandma Nan insists she's not wearing a costume, but in her miniskirt and cowboy boots, she's nearly as outlandish as chubby Grandma Sal, who's bandaged as a mummy. In a wonderful climactic double-page spread, the warm fall colors give way to creepy blues and blacks as the fanged grandma monsters rout the bullies. Then grandmas and kids share the treats. This is a book to enjoy across generations--for the holiday farce and for the adult characters who act like kids. Hazel Rochman
