Halloween Countdown

by Jack Prelutsky
Illustrated by Dan Yaccarino

Published by HarperFestival / HarperCollins, 2002
20 pages
ISBN: 0-06-000512-2

Ages 2 - 4

The ghosts that haunt this board book are more playful than spooky, cooking in the kitchen or hanging on the walll. Young children will enjoy counting the ghosts on each boldly colored, stylized two-page spread as the number descends from 10 down to one. And that last ghost has a not-too-scary surprise in store at the end of this brief, rhyming volume. CCBC Categories: Seasons and Celebrations.  © Cooperative Children's Book Center
