Leslie Patricelli is the creator of a series of best-selling board books starring her beloved bald baby as well as Higher! Higher!, Faster! Faster!, Be Quiet, Mike!, and two stories about the Patterson Puppies. She lives in Ketchum, Idaho.
This will end up in many storytime stacks all year long. A warm and
cuddly celebration of the creepiest holiday.
Patricelli honestly explores the frights and excitements that
Halloween first-timers often feel, but she keeps the dial firmly
set to fun.
--Publishers Weekly The lively color-saturated illustrations play off the simple, direct text, adding humor and silliness to the mix. Two interactive double-page spreads--"How should we carve our jack-o'- lantern?" and "What should I be?"-- involve young listeners in the fun and prep newbies for these holiday highlights.
--The Horn Book Another winner for Patricelli. She has cleverly crafted a tale about a lovable preschooler celebrating another favorite holiday.
