It's Halloween night and the trick-or-treaters are making their rounds. One little witch meets one little witch and then they're joined by a plump pumpkin and a fuzzy bunny, a friendly pirate and a pink princess until ten trick-or-treaters tiptoe together up to a dark scary house and ... a MONSTER opens the door! Oh, no! Ten trick-or-treaters run home as quickly as they can.

About the Author:

Harriet Ziefert has written numerous books for the very young. She worked for many years as an elementary school teacher and, more recently, has done graduate work in child development. She divides her time between New Jersey and Massachusetts, USA. Simms Taback has illustrated over forty children's books and also designed and illustrated the very first McDonald's Happy Meal box. He lives in New York, USA.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 1-A simple counting story for group sharing and beginning readers. One little witch plus another little witch add (one at a time) a clown, skeleton, striped cat, and so forth, to their retinue until there are "ten trick-or-treaters going trick-or-treating in the dark on Halloween night." Encountering a monster at a spooky old house, all scatter until only the two little witches remain. One rides off on her broomstick and the other walks home and counts her treats, leaving none. The text is simple and the addition predictable, ideal for novice mathematicians. The phrases "going trick-or-treating" and "in the dark on Halloween night" are used repeatedly, but do not build a strong rhythm or invite children to join in the oral reading, as does Sue Alexander's Who Goes Out on Halloween? (Bantam, 1990). Taback's large, primitive, watercolor-and-ink cartoons are especially delightful, though, both spooky with bold uses of black backgrounds and reassuringly familiar with the obviously homemade costumes. And Ziefert's surprise ending is a nice bonus.
