Haunted Halloween


"Fliess counts spooky and creepy-crawly creatures in groups from one through 10 (“1 bat hangs,/ Pointy fangs”). Flaps reveal each new scene, rendered in brightly contrasting blues and purples. The trick-or-treaters step up to a purple door, which opens to show a sweet surprise for kids just getting to know the holiday." —Publishers Weekly


"Not too scary, not too sweet—a pleasant-enough way to get the Halloween party started for older toddlers and young preschoolers." Kirkus Reviews

"Have you found some spooktacular reads for your little bookworms yet? Ellie can’t get enough of Sue Fliess’s and Jay Fleck’s HAUNTED HALLOWEEN—a festive and bold, counting board book full of rhyming couplets that will keep your Littles engaged with each page. It’s been such a hit in our house that we thought we should bring it to the pumpkin patch and identify matching items within the board book to items in our surroundings. Too fun!" @bedtime.stories.forevermore
