KIRKUS REVIEW

Woodland critters celebrate Halloween.

It’s Halloween time, and the forest is buzzing with excitement. The annual pumpkin party is in full swing, and with it comes pumpkin costumes, pumpkin races, and all sorts of other pumpkin-related activities. The festivities are described in an abcb rhyme scheme that lends itself to chanting aloud. The purple and orange color palette evokes the holiday neatly while not drawing away from the warm tone. The illustrations have a soft warm glow to them that negates the spooky side of the season and brings out the joyous sense of old-school harvest celebrations. Little readers frightened by the ghosts and goblins that permeate many Halloween books have nothing to fear here: these little foxes and badgers in their pumpkin costumes are completely adorable. This read is an essential addition to the Halloween-themed story stack for the littlest readers.

A new holiday favorite. (Board book. 1-3)
