A cutely illustrated book that mentions all the fun things about Halloween, sure to get a kid excited for the holiday. Honestly, it got me excited for the holiday and I'm 27.

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy from the Prism Book Tours. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.Hall-O-Ween! By Tia Perkin is an enchanting tale of a child's delight and their trick-or-treat adventure.
Sweet Halloween story with beautiful illustration
I enjoyed the story with a few spooky things, some treats, the costumes, everyone celebrating the holiday, and of course the ending was perfect. It reminded me of my Halloweens as a kid. Halloween wa

This is a fun Halloween tale about the sounds, smells, and movements of three young trick-or-treaters! Hall-O-Ween! is light and fun read for preschool and elementary school aged kids with light and loose rhymes and colorful, entertaining illustrations.

With real owls and cats, pretend bats and spiders, and fun Halloween costumes, there aren’t scary or frightening scenes. The fonts are fitting and easy to read, and the vibrant illustrations are fun. The repetitious action words—Hoo! Hoo! Boo! Bo

Hall-O-Ween was an instant hit with my kids (ages 1, 3, 5). We've read it several times over. I discovered that my kids were sneaking it in their beds to look at instead of sleeping. My kids were also reading it all over the house. I love the bright colors used in the book. Some Halloween picture books are too scary for young kids, but this one was fun and cute. I loved the onomatopoeia used throughout the story, the rhymes, and how the book encompasses the feeling of Halloween. The word count w ...more

Hoo Hoo says the owl.
The leaves on the tree go scratch scratch.

What does a ghost say?

What noise do bats make?

What do you say at the door when you go house to house for candy on Halloween?

HALL-O-WEEN! is a delightful Halloween picture book. Each page features brightly colored and fun illustrations of Halloween events/surroundings, including getting dressed in costumes, owls, spiders, decorating for Halloween, and of course trick-or-treating!

The text is rhyming and features sounds on each page related to Halloween, including knock knock on the door, ding dong when friends arrive, eek eek for the bat, and so much more! Toddlers, preschoolers, and early elementary school-aged reader

Is it Trick or Treaters? Or could it be Ghost, spiders and oh no! Not Zombies! Your young children will love this adorable book about Halloween by author Tia Perkins. In this book you will find rhymes on each page and then sounds that go with the rhyme. Such as; “Tip!Toe!, To the house with the ghostly gravestones”!

Ms. Perkins also created the pictures for each page of this book and they are so adorable, as you can see in the picture above! So why not check out th

This book is a delightfully written and illustrated book featuring the traditional characters associated with Halloween and the sounds they make. It is a fun read-aloud for a classroom or Halloween party.

There are bats, zombies, spiders, ghosts, zombies, pumpkins, and trick or treaters. Perkin places a simple rhyming line with the associated sound on each page. For example, skipping, groaning, knocking, etc. Lots of enjoyment for toddlers, preschoolers and elementary age readers who will find ju

This is a great book of Halloween sounds for the little ones, ages 0-7. The illustrations are out of this world gorgeous. They shine off the page. I highly recommend this rhyming book that I love.
..Eeeek! Eeeek! Shriek the bats. Sniff, Sniff, All the cookies and candy and cider. Zip! Snap! Now the dinosaur's ready for frights. "A spooky little rhyming book," says the author.
I borrowed this book on a Kindle Unlimited website and so can you.

I have two kids. A fifth grader and a third grader. We have read books together almost every night since they were babies. So, of course, I had to read this with them.

I enjoyed the story. The illustrations were cute and vibrant. I love the color choices. The story seems geared for a younger audience than my two, but my kids enjoyed it. Definitely one to read out loud. 😀

Very Talented Author and Illustrator

This is a very well done book! The pictures are so cute. Young children will love looking at all the Halloween pictures and picking out their favorite! Plus the rhyme is good, the “noise” words work well for Halloween with a lot of creepy sounds, and it tells an entire story! I would definitely buy this print book for a gift!

Hall-O-Ween was an easy fun read. Colorful pictures and an attention keeper. My granddaughter loved it and as usual we will be reading it again. Thanks so very much and Perkin you made my granddaughter’s night time reading a special night.👍👍
My favorite day of the year is coming soon! Hall-O-ween is almost here! And what better way to celebrate than to read a spooky book under a blanket surrounded by sweet treats. The book is filled with fun rhymes and beautiful illustrations. It's the perfect treat for your little ghoul!

Need this in my arsenal!

I'm a nanny and babysitter, plus the oldest of five siblings! Definitely need this for those kiddos and my future kid! 😅 The illustrations are unique and cute and just perfect. It's such an easy book to read, with just enough depth. I love it!

Good book for the kids to enjoy the fun of Halloween. It was recommended by my previous purchases of kids books. Easy for my son to read on his own with out help. This is a fun book for all ages.

This book is absolutely amazing for teaching my 2 year old daughter about trick or treating as this will be her first time doing so. It shows her what to expect. She loves it

Amazon had a Kindle freebie deal on this book today, so I decided to take advantage and check it out for the spooky season! Great, colorful illustrations that build the excitement of Halloween night, and it's fun to read along with the sounds of the holiday.

Boring and not engaging

My son hated this story. It didn’t have enough story thread to keep him interested. It’s a shallow story with minimal substance.

Glad we got the book for free because I’d feel cheated if we’d paid for this story.

Not kindle friendly

It was free and not worth the price. It is impossible to read on the kindle. Each page overlaps itself multiple times.
I can’t judge if the story is any good.

My 3 year old really enjoyed this book. Finding fun books about boos and ghouls is tricky, especially for bedtime stories.
