Booklist Review

PreS^-Gr. 2. The new version of Gibbons' Halloween (1984) features a larger format, new illustrations, and a revised and slightly longer text as well as the new title. Comparison of the two books clearly shows Gibbons' shift in style to a looser, livelier line and greater variation and richness of color. Libraries with multiple copies of the earlier book will still find this version useful when the holiday rush is on, and given a choice, children will reach for this bigger, brighter, new edition. --Carolyn Phelan


Publisher's Weekly Review

Gail Gibbons explains holiday roots and traditions in Halloween Is..., a companion to Christmas Is.... Whimsically decorated borders of wee ghosts and pumpkins frame the playful illustrations. (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
