KIRKUS REVIEW

Three intrepid trick-or-treaters attend a party at the last house on Shivermore Street, where every hour, masked partygoers take part in a different ghoulishly fun activity. At seven they eat grisly treats. At eight the witches play musical chairs. At nine the vampires carve scary pumpkins, etc. At midnight they limbo with mummies until the clock strikes 13 and unmasking reveals everyone but our threesome are monsters underneath too! Pollack and Belviso have created a spooky, rhyming counting book that will make a fine addition to holiday collections. DuBurke’s saturated, full-bleed acrylic-and-ink illustrations are dynamic, engaging, and full of creepy (but not too creepy) detail. A Halloween tale with verve and a good sense of humor. (Picture book. 3-7)
