School Library Journal Review

PreS-Gr 1-This title is a little deceptive since there isn't much about the story that is scary, and very little happens. Mary's class is having a sleepover at the school on Halloween, and once the students put on their costumes, some of them are frightened. The narrative doesn't flow well, and is flat in comparison to the active pictures that emphasize positive classroom dynamics. The illustrations of the classmates are appealing and well drawn. The art outperforms the text in every way.-Hannah Hoppe, Miles City Public Library, MT (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
