About the Author:

Author Anne Broyles lives in Malibu, California, and has been a pastor for twenty years in the United Methodist Church. Her background as a pastoral counselor, AIDS activist, and member of the Cherokee Nation West all influence her writing.

From Booklist:

Gr. 2-4, younger for reading aloud. Recently arrived from Russia, Anya and her sibs are looking forward to their first Halloween. When Papa arrives home plainly under the weather, shy Mama consents to take them, and off they go. The concluding spread, with background information and discussion questions, reveals the didactic intent here, but the tale is told without lecturing, and by the end, Anya and her mother are feeling more connected to the culture of their new home. Morin's restrained, realistic urban scenes give this a 1940s or early-1950s feel; it's definitely an old-style Halloween, as the children's treats are all unpackaged goods. Halloween may not be the safest choice for a tale of this ilk: other books about acclimation through holiday celebrations, such as Elisa Bartone's American, Too (1996), will ruffle fewer feathers. But the holiday's controversial aspects are downplayed, and children who blithely assume that trick-or- treating is part of everyone's cultural heritage will get some food for thought. John Peters
