Synopsis: Costumes, monsters, and food abound at the tempting, teasing, terrible Halloween party that happens once each year.
From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-Grade 2-A little boy and a woman don a Dracula and witch costume and walk down spooky streets, "...Past jack-o-lantern eyes that glow/Through pools of mist that swirl and flow/To the daunting, haunting, hair-raising Halloween party." Once there, they eat, play games, make music, and form a marching band. Then, it's time to remove the masks, and everyone is horrified that the the two really are...Dracula and a witch! The story ends with the woman flying home on her broomstick, holding the boy by the hand. Like the best mysteries, the surprise doesn't come out of nowhere-it's there for everyone to see-if they notice it, and sharp-eyed children will see that, at the very beginning of the book, the main characters' silhouettes give a clue to their true identities. On the whole, the writing is vivid and smooth, although the verse occasionally sounds rather utilitarian and strained. The pictures are a treat; colorful and fun, they show both the expected (the pirates, devils, ghosts) and the unexpected (a chicken with a saxophone, a chair without back legs, and a manacled arm). Shute's use of black as a background is very effective, as are her compositions and use of light and shadow. An enjoyable holiday title.
