Two witches are preparing for their annual monster party. They keep finding pictures of some type of creature (vampires, zombies, skeletons, etc.) doing something they didn't like at the party. So they decide to ban that creature from the party. They keep doing it over and over again until they even ban witches! But they are witches! They decide to forget all the banning of creatures and to just ban pictures, so they would continue to remember it as the best party ever.

Good for preschool or olde

No Zombies allowed - This picture book is about two witches (Wizzle and Woddle) who plan a big party.

Eventually, they realize that the party will be more fun with everyone invited. A cute sto ...more

I started reading this to one five-year-old, and quickly I had a group of ten kids clamoring to get closer and listen. The illustrations were hilarious, as was the storyline of two witches set on excluding all the creatures who attended their party the year before: zombies dropped their eyeballs (how rude), werewolves left hairballs, swamp creatures tracked slime across the house. Ultimately, they rethink their invite list and have the best party ever. Nice little sneaky message about being pers ...more

I picked this up in the Lewiston Library's Halloween section. I had to get it based on the title. I got it specifically for Mike to read to Natalie, which he did tonight. Natalie was sleeping and nursing, but Mike and I enjoyed the story. All the different types of monsters and the trouble they caused was fun. It was also fun to try to predict the ending.

Although not explicitely a Halloween book, it would make a great read-aloud in classrooms and libraries during October. Very cute story that will appeal to boys and girls. It is more suited for Kindergaretn and up, rather than toddlers or preschoolers.
