KIRKUS REVIEW

Halloween surprises for diapered trick-or-treaters.

Despite invitations to look behind a “creepy cauldron,” then investigate an “eerie sound,” actual frights are not included as Smiley Ghost, Hootie Owl, and the three likewise iconic figures that pop up from beneath lifted flaps are simply made felt toys. The character or characters disclosed in one tableau feature as the protagonists of the next for a pleasing sense of continuity, and they all appear on the final page to discover Little Black Cat, who started things off, popping out of a jack-o’-lantern at the end. The fuzzy visitors are placed into stylized playscapes that feature a plastic pot, shiny jack-o’-lanterns, a basket of bright peppers, and the like. Pages and flaps are printed on heavy board stock—a good choice as, for many toddlers, peekaboo is a game that never gets old—and the pop-up elements, though lighter, are sturdy enough to survive the occasional grab.

Treats, with age-appropriate tricks. (Pop-up board book. 1-3)
