Product Description

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-K?Costumed mice frisk, whisk, whirl, and twirl through the moonlight to party in the pumpkin patch. Rustle, rustle, swish, swish, the Halloween cat prepares to pounce. After a quick huddle, the clever rodents use their flashlight to create a monstrous shadow to frighten the cat away. Home again, the tired little creatures tumble into bed, except for the littlest, who creates his own monster. Full-page watercolors are appropriate for the holiday while not too scary for the intended audience. The simple text is packed with words to delight the ear. A worthwhile addition for a holiday that never has enough picture books.?Virginia Opocensky, formerly at Lincoln City Libraries, NE

From Booklist

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.

Format: Paperback
My 6 year old just finished reading this to me (with a little help) and we both enjoyed it even though Halloween was well over a month ago. The text is simple and repetitive which made the book easy for him to read and caused very little frustration (though a few of the words were new to him). The story is about a group of jolly mice dressed for Halloween. They're dancing, eating and having a great old time until a cat decides to crash the party. They then devise a way to scare off the cat so they can continue their fun. Gotta love 'em. The drawings are fanciful and spooky without being too scary for little ones. My son loved the final page and said he'd love to read it again. The book gets 5 stars for that comment alone!

HASH(0xa6f54300) out of 5 stars A book your child will want to memorize and recite while they learn to read Nov. 8 2009
By Oakland Citizen - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
My four year old loved this Halloween book last year (it was the 2008 book of the year in our house) and loved it again this year (it was a close second to Dragon's Halloween). On the first read or two, I didn't really "get" the meter and rhythm of the book, but give it a couple of reads and you'll be rattling it off in the car and everywhere from memory like it's a new favorite song. So catchy and infectious, and like the previous reviewer said--just so cute! LOTS of sound words, "hurry," "scurry," "frisk," "frisk." Lots of rhyming, which is what we're practicing nonstop with our little 4YO. Lots of fun, not scary, but captures all the elements of Halloween--costumes, festivity, pumpkin patches, night time critters, spookiness, and lots of fun. This was another book that after it went back to the library had to be added to the "permanent collection." Super cute book, can't recommend it highly enough.

HASH(0xa6f54ae0) out of 5 stars *KINDLE EDITION*: Horrible, incohesive format/layout. Worthless Sept. 6 2012
By Elchin Safarov - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The book itself is wonderful and deserves more stars for a high rating. The story is cute and entertaining and the sound effects are fun.

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!!

HASH(0xa6f54990) out of 5 stars What an adorable Halloween storybook for a young reader and-or child listener Oct. 23 2014
By Rosa Cline - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
What an adorable Halloween storybook for a young reader and-or child listener! Illustrations are wonderful to match the simple one to sentences per page story. The adorable little mice are dressed in costumes and they sneak out to go to a party in the pumpkin patch. They have a fun time dancing and just having a good time when they see and hear a CAT coming! They get together and make their own shadow and scare the cat away... time to go home it's getting late everyone yawns. They get in bed to go to bed but will they all go to sleep? Not the littlest one... BOO!

HASH(0xa6f54b1c) out of 5 stars Cute rhyming halloween book Oct. 4 2012
By stigabre - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Board book Verified Purchase
I ordered this book for my 4-year old daughter. I expected it to be a big board book, but it actually isn't. She likes it anyway. The story is very simple: mice go to have a party under the moonlight on Halloween. A cat comes and the sly mice manage to scare it by making a trick with their shadows. I liked all the beautiful pictures and also the text that captures the sound of the mice moving. I think this book is good for children from 2-4. It has a nice ending :) At least my daughter liked it.
