The information about the history and customs are a bit more in depth in a few areas but still the same. Other areas though were a joke. In the witch section she talks about early immigrants and mentions immigrants from Haiti and Africa in the early 19th centurary and before they were slaves not really immigrants. Then when she mentioned Salem the author says 150 people were imprisoned and they died one way or another. Why write about history if you are just going to exclude real information?

This book was super adorable. I loved the illustrations throughout the book and all of the extra little Halloween touches.

This is a great Hallowe'en history book of sorts with awesome illustrations and great party ideas. Highly recommended!

A delightful book full of all the background to Halloween that anyone could ask for. The design and layout is very appealing and all the vintage artwork is covetable ! I am a sucker for old postcards, greeting cards and the like.
I will say though that the "to do crafts" are a little more geared towards children. However all in all it's a beautiful book. Hardback with orange edging all around the pages and a pumpkin on a ribbon bookmark. 5*

A great quick little easy to read book; though I did find most of the crafty makes to be a bit more on the elementary side instead of vintage, rustic, or even primitive.
