Twins enjoy some Halloween fun.
Luke and Lottie are excited for trick-or-treating; they’ve already decided on costumes: Lottie will be a witch, and Luke, a ghost. But the duo are still young enough to be a bit fearful of Halloween’s scarier side: A spider decoration made of yarn fools them both. After their mother reassures them, she invites them to help her assemble some edible treats, and then they make jack-o’-lanterns with their dad. By then, it’s time to head out. Their dad (dressed as a vampire) accompanies them for an evening of trick-or-treating. The night ends when they arrive back at home to tell their mother all about it. Wielockx’s characters all have adorable round heads and snub noses, and none of the costumes or sights are scary. The family all has pale skin and brown hair. Amid the costumed trick-or-treaters, two other people appear to have brown skin; the rest are pale.
This gentle, simple tale features only treats, making it just right for very little trick-or-treaters. (Picture book. 3-6)
