From Publishers Weekly
En route to "your house," a mischievous witch stops at creepy locales to pick up ghosts and mummies: "Hop aboard, there's always room/ for a howling, growling Werewolf,/ and a lurking, smirking Vampire/ to ride this broom." Melmed (The Rainbabies) provides serviceable cumulative rhymes, while Cole (Moosetache) designs standard-issue ghouls and prankish labels for specimen jars and headstones ("Claire Voyant, Sandy Beech [`she was all washed up']"). Last year's genial Room on the Broom, by Julia Donaldson and Alex Scheffler, offers a bouncier ride. Ages 3-8.--"). Last year's genial Room on the Broom, by Julia Donaldson and Alex Scheffler, offers a bouncier ride. Ages 3-8.

From School Library Journal
PreSchool-Grade 1-It's time for a witch's Fright Night Flight. "With hat and cat, away I zoom/upon my super jet-fueled broom." The first stop is a spooky castle with a creaky floor inhabited by a "lurking, smirking Vampire" who joins the party. They fly off to a number of places-the cemetery, the "House of Dread," and elsewhere-picking up other spooky characters along the way. When the frightful creatures reach their destination, they warn readers that they'll soon end up at "-your house (we know the street) and- ring- your- doorbell- TRICK OR TREAT!" The rhyming text is full of fun. The full-spread illustrations are rich with color and amusing detail, and the characters are drawn in a nonthreatening cartoon style that will not scare young children. A fine choice for Halloween storytimes.

I have never read a more inappropriate book for ages 4-8. I am a teacher who cannot imagine the reaction of my elementary class if this were read to them. Read morePublished on Oct. 23 2003
This is a wonderful book. Melmed's lyrical verses and Cole's illustrations convey the excitement and fun of Halloween. This would be a great choice for any child.Published on Oct. 21 2003
