I just CANNOT resist Halloween books, especially not during this special time, Spooktober! So I had to request this book and I was in luck, I could read it! This was a delightful little picture book about Fall and the upcoming Halloween! From falling leaves and spiders to hayrides and candy buying and costumes. Each day we are getting closer to Halloween (and I did like seeing some supernatural critters along the way, yes keep your eyes peeled). I was definitely jealous of these kids, living a country where Halloween is so normal. Because I would also love hayrides, or make forts, or go to a corn maze, or have a big fat parade. And then there is trick or treating. Argh! I just wanted to step into the book, sadly, no portals opened so I was stuck in my own world.
The book is in rhyme and that made it even more fun! I really had fun!
I also have to give extra points for adding a kid in a wheelchair. It is still very rare to see someone in a wheelchair in children’s books, so I am very delighted to see this little guy and see him have all the fun with his friends.
Though it is the monster of Frankenstein, not Frankenstein. Sorry, but I cannot help but correct that. XD
The art is just wonderful, I love love love the style! Be sure to also check those gorgeous pages before the book starts.
All in all, recommended to all! This is one Halloween book you definitely should check out. Perfect for the build-up to Halloween and Halloween itself.
