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."
