About the Author:

Emily Arnold McCully has illustrated more than a hundred books for children, including her own First Snow and Arnold Adoff's Black Is Brown Is Tan. She won the Caldecott Medal for her book Mirette On the High Wire.

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
