Publisher Comments:

The first time you hear the concept of Halloween when you're a kid, your brain can't even understand it. "What is this? What did you say? Someone's giving out candy? Who's giving out candy? EVERYONE WE KNOW is giving out candy? I gotta be part of this!"

In his first picture book, comedian and bestselling author Jerry Seinfeld captures on the page his hilarious views on Halloween, from Superman costumes that look like pajamas to the agony of getting bad trick-or-treat candy. Both kids and adults will eat up Jerry's distinct and unwritten rules of Halloween and will laugh together as they read Halloween out loud just as Jerry would in his own classic stand-up routine. James Bennett's outlandish illustrations perfectly depict these unique observations, reminding us why Jerry Seinfeld is the funniest man alive.

About the Author

Jerry Seinfeld, the award-winning comedian, writer, and actor, starred for nine years in Seinfeld, the most acclaimed sitcom of our time. The New York Times characterized his work as "keenly observed, carefully timed, contemplative humour about life's minutiae, people's foibles, and mankind's quotidian moments of angst." He is the author of a previous book for adults, Seinlanguage, and a one-man HBO special, I'm Telling You For the Last Time. He resides in New York with his wife, Jessica, and young daughter, Sasha.

James Bennett has illustrated for many major publications, including Time, Sports Illustrated, Business Week, and Mad Magazine. Last year he received the Hamilton Kind Award for Best Illustration of the Year. He lives and works in Bucks County with his wife, Susan, and their two young boys, Steven and Brett.
