A collection of Halloween stories and poems by a variety of authors

Grade 2-6-- Another of Bauer's collections of stories, poems, and recipes on a single theme. Poems are the major emphasis here--28 in all, from the humorous ("I'm Skeleton" by Lilian Moore) to the scary ("The Visitor" by Ian Serraillier). Stories range from the familiar King of the Cats and The Hairy Toe to the chilling but less well known The Jigsaw Puzzle, guaranteed to be an often-requested Halloween read-aloud. Many of Bauer's selections are available elsewhere, but not in such an appealing format--ideal for parents or teachers who don't have the time for gathering good Halloween material. Sis' pen-and-ink illustrations are wonderful--appropriately eerie or humorous, depending on the selection. The clever drawings do more than support the text; they enhance it with creative touches in nearly every drawing. Children will not need much encouragement to pick up this book, and they won't want to put it down. --Barbara S. McGinn, Oak Hill Elementary School, Severna Park, MD
