This is not just a book about Trick or Treating, it is also about counting! And in a very delightful, hilarious way.
We start off with 10 little kids who are going out to trick or treating, but as their journey for candy progresses we lose them one by one. Until there is just one left!
The children run away in terror/fear/fright for all sorts of things. Skeletons, frogs, spiders, anything really. You would think given it is Halloween that these kids know what to expect, but instead they run away when they see something spooky on their way.
After the first trick or treater ran away, I couldn’t wait to see what the next trick or treater would be scared of. Would it be another spider? Or would it be something different? Thankfully, the author makes sure never to use the same scare for the next trick or treater.
The art is pretty decent, though I am not too sure about the mouths on the people. It looks more like they have a zipper inside their mouth instead of teeth. 😛
I really enjoyed reading this book, seeing what the trick or treaters were up to, and laughing my butt off when they were scared away. Definitely a recommendation on a day like today.
