"Watson continues her tour around the holidays, this time stopping at Halloween. The same diminutive characters from Hurray for the Fourth of July appear here, getting their costumes ready, painting faces, carving jack-o'-lanterns. This is a family affair, and each member, including Grandma and Grandpa, spouts Halloween jokes and shivery poetry as the preparations continue. . . . As in her other books in the series, Watson puts much of the dialogue into balloons, probably makingthis more fun for kids to read to themselves than to hear aloud. A rambunctious rendition of the holiday."--ALA Booklist "Watson provides all the fun of the season in her text, while her bright pen-and-watercolor illustrations add another dimension. Full-page and double-page drawings contain conversation balloons of riddles and rhymes. Libraries wishing to add Halloween stories with a not-too-spooky tone will want to consider this one."--School Library Journal "A nicely understated change of pace from the more garish books for this holiday."--Kirkus Reviews
