KIRKUS REVIEW

One little green-caped and -masked bunny makes its tremulous way through a dark Halloween night until—“Jump. / Bump! / ‘Eeek!’ / ‘Squeak!’—it bumps into a bumblebee-bunny, and shivering and quivering, they decide to join forces, “two paws held tight,” for trick-or-treating. Galbraith’s minimal text falls into nicely staccato rhyming couplets, while Mack’s bright acrylics isolate his fuzzy protagonists on a spooky, black background that places bare-branched trees in bold silhouette against an eerily colored sky. Colors modulate as the newfound friends proceed, joyously scattering bits of candy and carrots behind. Newly minted trick-or-treaters will ask for this one over and over. (Picture book. 3-6)
