I adore Halloween stories, and this installment of A Gregory Green Adventure series was pure joy for me with its spooky-fun, colorful illustrations featuring Sammy and Gregory and the silly adventure that made me smile to the very last page, which is Sammy's Secret, a bonus in every story. Get this story for you and the kiddos in your life!

This is a sweet, trick or treating adventure with a special twist of Halloween magic as sweet as candy corn.

Gregory and his bear, Sammy, put on their costumes, and with Mom's instructions, head out to trick or treat. But things are spookier than usual on Halloween night. Soon, the shadows reveal surprises and the two wonder if they are as brave as they thought. But when one shadow reveals a broom stick, the magic begins.

While this book belongs to a series of books, each one is a separate story and can easily be read alone.

The excitement of heading out alone for the very first time to go trick or treating comes to life in these pages. Gregory and Sammy, a teddy bear who is more than his stuffing and string, are nervous but mostly excited as they head out into the night. The mother's instructions fit perfectly to the situation—only go to the houses where she can see them from the window. Even though this sounds very safe, the two still find themselves in thick adventures, which shows how wonderful the imagination can be.

It's easy to relate to the two as they meet their own fears, ones many kids share when their imaginations get the better of them. And the twist of magical fun toward the end, adds a wonderful adventure kids can dream of. It's a lovely balance between reality and fantasy.

This book borders between a picture book and something children, who have gotten a better grip on words, can read on their own. The vocabulary is generally kept simple enough for more sure readers to attack, and the length fits perfectly as well. As a picture book, it's great for the slightly older audience (ages five and up) due to the length. But it makes a wonderful read aloud for this age group.
The illustrations are bright and simple but add just the right touch to make the book fun to flip through.

It's an entertaining read, which kids can identify with before heading out on their own trick or treating adventure.

I received a complimentary copy and enjoyed it enough to want to leave my honest thoughts. I'm giving it 4.5 stars and rounding up.

In the Gregory Green Adventures number 3 it’s a Halloween ride.

I've never been one to really indulge in specifically Halloween stories, but I really enjoyed this one. Gregory and Teddy go trick or treating, and Teddy is wearing a Pumpkin costume, which has a neat backstory if you follow the author. In any case, while they are out, they encounter a witch and a very cute little adventure. This is my favorite in the series so far.

Wonderful Adventure to share with younger ones

So Gregory and Sammy are going on an adventure on Halloween. They are going on a flight and almost reach the moon. What a delightful and entertaining story to share with even the youngest of readers. Well done and we do look forward to more stories of their adventures!
