Kindergarten-Grade 2-This is a simple, lighthearted tale of partying mice on Halloween who outwit a prowling cat with a trick of their own. After the party, when the mice are falling asleep, a small mouse pulls a prank of his own. Jane Staab's reading captures the tone of mischief, suspense, and fun of Bethany Roberts' original book (Clarion, 1995). With Doug Cushman's smoky watercolors and adorable mice, the effect is perfect. One side of the tape has page-turn signals and the other side is told uninterrupted. Unfortunately, the monotonous and synthetic background music detracts from the appeal of this audio version. Nonetheless, with the demand for Halloween materials, this set will not stay on the shelves long.

Ages 4^-6. A group of costumed mice are frolicking in the pumpkin patch when they hear the swish, swish of a creeping cat. Off they run, but they don't just turn tail. Using a light and a mask, they throw a shadow that frightens away the cat for good. Simple sentences and lots of onomatopoeia make the text as appealing as the energetic watercolor-and-pen artwork. A fun read for Halloween story hours. Ilene Cooper --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.See all Product Description

However, I specifically bought the Kindle edition, and it was an unwise purchase. The Kindle edition is worthless. It is formatted completely wrong and the layout is absolutely horrible. It doesn't actually read like the book at all!!! It gives you the two page layout, then a repeat of each singular page, plus a transcription/caption/rewrite of what's written on each page! It's completely incohesive and impossible to actually use as an ebook, nevermind using it to keep a child's attention.
Bottom line: Don't buy the ebook edition. Get yourself the hard copy!!
