Everyone loves the 12 Days of Christmas well here is the 13 Days of Halloween. For each of the first 12 days the male creature gives the female creature a “gift” such as hissing cats, cooked worms, spiders, goblins and more. Now you can sing along as you read a Halloween song for the family. What happens on the 13th day you ask? The female gives the male a present in return.

I don’t do spoilers but I will say I wasn’t that happy with the ending, but that’s just me. I loved the illustrations which are by Tim Raglin. They are absolutely hideous but not gruesome. My almost 4 year old doesn’t like Halloween but I can see my younger one liking it when she’s a bit older.

I’m glad I got a chance to review this book (Thanks Sourcebooks!) I think it would make a good book to read to a class of grade 2-3.
