Synopses & Reviews
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.
