VERA ROSENBERRY is the author and illustrator of seven other books about spunky Vera. She lives with her husband in Cambridge, England.From School Library Journal:
Kindergarten-Grade 2—In this eighth book in the series, Vera goes trick-or-treating with her older sisters. She is dressed as a mummy, bedecked in toilet paper with a couple of red splotches added. Mom suggests a winter coat, but mummies don't wear snowsuits. The streets are full of trick-or-treaters, with grown-ups in costume as well as kids. Vera's bandages start to unravel, and while she's trying to fix them, she loses sight of her family. And then it starts to rain. It's bad enough that her costume disintegrates, but then her bag full of candy gets wet and the bottom falls out. The rain turns to sleet and then to snow, and she's lost and cold. Vera sees a house with many pumpkins in the windows and ventures to the door. A school friend lives there and Anand's father takes her into the house. Parents are called and all is well. The watercolor illustrations are quite detailed. As always, Vera is a feisty little girl whose adventures end happily. Fans will appreciate this Halloween episode.—Ieva Bates, Ann Arbor District Library, MI
