PreS-Gr 1–Little Monster is getting ready to experience his first trick-or-treat expedition, and he’s feeling a little anxious. But his papa comes with him and reassures him that there is nothing to be afraid of. Gradually, Little Monster begins to appear less anxious and encouraged that everything is all right. In a charming final twist, the roles are reversed, as Little Monster is the one with the comforting smile when his father is frightened by a skeleton. Charming full-bleed watercolor illustrations featuring cheerful zombies, ghouls, and an assortment of adorable monsters combine with comforting rhyming text to create a playful Halloween outing that is sure to please little monsters everywhere.
VERDICT Recommended for collections and perfect for seasonal storytime.
