Unwrapping Some Illustrations for you
This delightful book is a celebration of the anticipation and taking part in, one of a kid's favourite nights... Hallowe'en. Written in rhyme, featuring a diversity of kids in costumes and adults handing out treats, it is the perfect read before this fun spooky night arrives.
Kids are encouraged to look around and observe the signs that Hallowe'en is getting near. Some of the signs are: getting dark at dinner time, leaves falling on the lawn, a chill in the air, and pumpkins to carve, just to name a few. The illustrations are detailed, full of action, and engaging. They invite kids to come along and join in on the fun. Wen has included various monsters throughout - a ghost near a hay-bale castle and a goblin on a rooftop. Finally the big night arrives: At last, “it’s tricks, and treats, and frights, and fun,/ and spooky things for everyone! Look around, the signs are clear Halloween if finally HERE!" I highly recommend this book.
