Children's Book Review: It's Halloween

It's Halloween

It's Halloween
Written by:  Jack Prelutsky
Pictures by:  Marylin Hafner
Published by: Mulberry Books, 1977
56 pages

Thirteen poems to spice up the holiday that ghouls and ghosts love most. "Prelutsky's Nightmares tamed for beginning readers. They're catchy at the most rudimentary level."--Kirkus Reviews.

* Wow!  This book was first published before I was born!  Definitely an oldie!  This book caught my eye because Prelutsky is a well-known children's poet.  We are a fan of his Scranimals and my daughter has read his  poetry collections A Pizza the Size of the Sun and The New Kid on the Block.  This book was a cute collection of Halloween-themed poetry.  He writes about everything from "Bobbing for Apples" to a "Haunted House" and a "Skeleton Parade."  The illustrations have a classic, older look to them. 

*This book was borrowed from the library.

Family Rating: 2 thumbs up!
