Halloween forest
Bauer, Marion Dane.
Easy Picture Book BAUER

Comments  Summary  Reviews  Author Notes

From Publishers' Weekly:

A child makes a Halloween journey in this evocative story with genuinely chilling illustrations. Leaving town by moonlight, the girl discovers a "forest of bones," filled with skeletons: "Bat bones, cat bones, rat bones, and all are looking at you." Using pen and India ink, Shelley constructs spidery bone trees, densely populated with skeletal creatures that scamper and hang upside-down. While the bones cry out "Take care! Beware! Despair!" Bauer underscores the girl's bravery and power as she banishes the bones (and nets a haul of candy). The nightmarish aesthetic touches on how a child's perception is shaped by imagination, especially on a spooky night. Ages 4-8. (Oct.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
