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

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.

Good for preschool or olde

I started reading this to one five-year-old, and quickly I had a group of ten kids clamoring to get closer and listen.

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.
eh. message of book is loud and clear to not exclude others. yawn. steve says "it wasn't great". so it was ungreat then.
Fun story about inclusion with bright, funny illustrations.

Two witches realize Halloween parties are more fun when all the neighborhood monsters are invited.
Maybe it really is better NOT to take photos sometimes... Very cute Halloween story.
pretty creative story about who "NOT" to invite to your party--
Cute...a good message without being preachy.
