I would give one and a half or two stars to this book.
I certainly do recognize the illustrations handiwork of Melissa Sweet from her collaboration with James Howe on the often lauded "Pinky and Rex" series, but this book provides an excellent vehicle for her to take her artistic abilities to another level.
The beautiful, panoramic paintings compliment the graceful writing of Cynthia Rylant to perfection, as one of my favorite versatile authors proves that she is very adept at taking a subject like Halloween night and conveying the sense of its magic to readers of all ages. More than a few families have (and will!) read this book in front of a warm fire on Halloween night, providing reassurance and fun and a true sense of being part of something special.
