It's Halloween and one trick-or-treater has a faithful companion to show the way and ease any fears--Dad. But it's Dad who soon is scared by all the mummies, skeletons, and zombies that are out for a night of Halloween fun in this bouncy rhyme accompanied by whimsical, appealing illustrations. Full color.
"Although this story's narrator wears white feathers and a red beak, his father is the real chicken. The grownup, a bespectacled fellow with a bit of a resemblance to Harry Potter, looks askance at costumed zombies and quivers over a party snack called Brains in Batter. 'Never fear. You've got me near,' his son says, holding his hand. Later, the child reassures the yawning adult, 'See, it wasn't such a fright./ I told you things would be all right.' Kimball's serviceable rhymes flip the parental power dynamic, while Reed (Shake Dem Halloween Bones) creates well-lit scenes of spookery in glowing sunset hues. Ages 4-7. (Sept.)"
