Trunk or Treat: A Lift-the-Flap ­Pop-Up Story

S. & S./Little Simon. Jul. 2024. 14p. Board $9.99. ISBN 9781665954693.
Toddler-PreS–A gaggle of familiar Halloween characters participate in trunk or treat in this cheerful, silly lift-the-flap, pop-up Halloween board book. A witch, monster, werewolf, skeleton, and ghost present their respective vehicles to readers before revealing what’s hiding inside. Young readers can study the clues in each spread to guess what kinds of surprises might be within each car. A fall/Halloween palette of orange, purple, and green dominates the dynamic, not-scary illustrations of familiar seasonal scenes, including bones, bats, a hearse, and even clowns, all of which are enhanced by the interactive elements.
VERDICT Recommended for collections in which holiday books are popular.
