Happy Halloween: Halloween Book Review

Happy Halloween to all my ghoulish readers.

Halloween Book Review: 

Trick or Treat on
Monster Street 

  Written by Danny Schnitzlein
    llustrated by Matt Faulkner  

After his teasing older brothers leave him alone on Halloween night, a young boy finds himself in a frightening situation. It's bad enough being left alone in the dark, but to be left on Monster St. is scarier than anything else. While the boy cautiously makes his way down Monster Street to trick or treat, hairy arms and tentacles drop spiders and dead fish into his bag.  He is relieved to meeet another trick-or-treater he thinks, but is surprised when his new friend removes his mask.

Danny Schnitzlein's clever prose delves into the monstrous fears of children. The young hero learns to conquer his fears and even has a twist for his older brothers that will make every child with an older sibling feel vindicated. The illustrations are a perfect fit for the story, moving the plot ahead without being too frightening for younger children. A great Halloween picture book for all your little ghouls and goblins. Your cute little pumpkin will like it too. Highly Recommended
