Halloween Night Paperback – July 23, 2013 by Marjorie Dennis Murray (Author)

Beautifully illustrated and a wonderful take on "Twas the Night before Christmas. " I highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys Halloween young and old alike. (I bought one for my nephew and turned right around and ordered another for myself once I got a look at it!) Check it out!

From School Library Journal Kindergarten-Grade 3—”‘Twas Halloween night, and all through the house/Every creature was stirring, including the mouse.” With text echoing the classic Christmas poem, the opening spread features a brightly lit mansion and pulls even the most reluctant readers into this holiday story. Out come bats, spiders, witches, ogres, ghosts, and banshees, all excitedly preparing a spectacular buffet for young trick-or-treaters. Their work backfires, however, when the children peek into the spooky house: “But what they saw on that shadowy night/Made each little trickster shiver with fright!” Murray’s smooth rhyming text combines well with Dorman’s vibrant and extraordinarily detailed digital art, with surprises on every page. This is an energetic romp with a satisfying conclusion that will be a fun read-aloud for wide-eyed children anxiously awaiting the holiday.—Lee Bock, Glenbrook Elementary School, Pulaski, WI Copyright © Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc.

Halloween Night Paperback – July 23, 2013 by Marjorie Dennis Murray (Author) Review

My Halloween-story-loving 4-year-old son loves this book! But it freaks him out just a little. Freaks my 3-year-old out even more. But they still like to read it!The story is kind of creepy- with REAL ghouls and ghosts and body part pictures. Illustrated, of course, but still kind of creepy. The story is fun, though, and the pictures are great. My kids really enjoy reading this. It’s just that in a lot of Halloween stories, the ghouls, ghosts, and goblins turn out to be people dressed up like them, or they end with everyone getting along. At the end of this book, the kids run away scared to death, while the scary guys end their party. Soooooo, the moral of this story is: This book is kind of creepy, but fun for older kids! -Read Reviews-

This is such a great Halloween book. The illustrations are magical and bring the fun spirit of Halloween without being overly scary. The story flows really well and keeps the kids attention. I read it in my son’s second grade class as a guest reader and they all loved the book.
