KIRKUS REVIEW

With die-cut holes for eyes and handles, readers can hold this board book, in its open state, up to their faces to create a variety of costumed personas.

Among the featured creatures are a robot, a superhero and a witch in the interior and a mummy on the cover. The characters are given a couple of lines of dialogue to announce their identities and make their signature sounds or statements: “I’m a proud pirate! / Ahoy there!” Each face has one rather delicate pop-up facial feature or accessory, such as the witch’s protruding nose and the superhero’s mask, which will likely not withstand extensive, rambunctious play. Ho’s cheery, smiling cartoons in bold colors imbue the title with a lively energy. While the cover does portray a spooky spider and an orange-and-black color scheme, this title could easily stretch beyond the Halloween season.

Children old enough not to be frightened by masks should get a kick out of this. (Board book. 2-4)
