Synopsis: Capturing all the spooky delights of Halloween, a tale by an award-winning author, featuring an irresistible rhyme scheme, recounts how the mice fought the creepy-crawlies to save their homes and the upcoming Ghost Dance Ball.
From School Library Journal:
Kindergarten-Grade 4-There are never enough good Halloween books when that ghostly holiday rolls around, and this story told in verse will make an enjoyable addition. On the night of Ghost Eve, the farmyard mice lay sleeping with costumes and masks, dreaming of their upcoming Halloween ball. But while they sleep, the dreaded, lizardlike creepy crawlies come creeping; invade their cheery home; and destroy costumes, masks, and their plans. Awaking to the mess, they begin to cry. The one white mouse champions them to take back what is theirs and drive the invaders out. Gathering rubber bands for slingshots, pins for swords, bottle caps for shields, and pop-can pull tabs for armor, the rodents rally to their cause and frighten the invaders away. But one small enemy stays behind and asks for friendship. The victors say no, but the white mouse comes to his rescue. The story ends when mouse and crawlie dance together beneath the moon. Yolen's verse, while wordy in places, spins a wonderful tale of adventure. Molk's oversized, full-color art covers three-quarters of each double-page spread and glows with soft moonlight. The mice are charming and the reptiles possess just the right amount of fiendish villainry to make them fun. A super choice.
