Who is brave enough to smell the noxious-looking witch's brew? How about taking a whiff of some scary skull pizza? Or do bobbing apples and a pink-striped lollipop seem more your idea of a Halloween treat? Whatever your olfactory fancy, this little Scratch and Sniff Halloween
board book has it all. Pumpkins, bats, bed-sheet ghosts, and other classic Halloween icons virtually jump off the page, thanks to DK Publishing's vivid, crisp photographs--and the scents that waft noseward with even the most delicate of scratches. Five two-page spreads, with five powerful fragrances (and minimal text), should keep the youngest trick-or-treater happy while awaiting the big day. (And fear not; the vile green swill in the witch's cauldron does not smell at all like spider toes and lizard tails--more like mint tea, in fact!) (Ages 2 to 5) --Emilie Coulter
From Publishers Weekly
In Scratch and Sniff Halloween, a simple text and full-color photographs dare children to sniff a "big, spooky pumpkin" and "scary, skull pizza." Also available in the same format, Scratch and Sniff Christmas offers yuletide scents.
