Picture Book Review: Halloween Books (2)

I needed to update our library Halloween collection, so I purchased several popular characters books. Here are some that I've purchased for the library and some sent for review.

I reviewed a bunch last week, check out that post here.

Clever Little Witch:
Clever Little WitchWhat happens when you wish to get rid of your little brother but the spell backfires?
You might find out he's not so terrible after all.

Happy Halloween Little Critter:
Happy Halloween, Little Critter! (The New Adventures of Mercer Mayer's Little Critter)
A lift the flap book shows off Little Critter's friends at a Halloween Party.

Creepiest Sleepover Ever:
Creepiest Sleepover Ever
I enjoyed this sleepover about friendship, Ghoul Guides, and secrets. What might be scary to you isn't always scary to someone else.

At the Old Haunted House:
At the Old Haunted House
A Counting book where three children head into an old house, with monsters getting ready for a party. A really fun book with great illustrations.

Halloween or Bust:
Fancy Nancy Halloween... or Bust!
What happens when your cute costume becomes a disaster?
Fancy Nancy finds a way to make it all work. Fans of this series will enjoy this Halloween party story.

Most Terrible Monster of All:
The Most Terrible of All
This book goes from bad to worse with a new addition to the monster clan, bad behavior, and a coemption to see who can be the worst monster. A sweet funny story. It isn't directly about Halloween, but it fits with the monster theme.

Trick or Pete:
Pete the Cat Trick or PeteA lift the flap book revealing things that could be spooky, but are not. Fans of Pete will enjoy this one.

Micky's Halloween Treat:
Mickey's Halloween Treat
Mickey and his friends are invited to a party, but they have to follow the clues to get there before the moon is full. A lift the flap book helps reveal the answers. A fun interactive story.

There's a Monster in Your Book:
There's a Monster in Your Book
Not a Halloween story, but it works because of the monster. A really fun interactive story about trying to get the monster Out of the book...mostly.
