Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun but wish the pages were thicker Same complaint as with the Christmas book: the pages are thin and flimsy and only glued together on the edges, so are easy to get your fingers between and damage them. The repeated rhyme is cute, though, and the illustrations are lovely. Both my kids love lift the flap books so this is fun for them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect amount of spookiness for preschoolers. We heard about the latest addition to the Little Blue Truck series from a friend and picked up a copy just before Halloween. It's a lovely addition to the series with enough spookiness for preschoolers and toddlers. I love the costumes and my son adores lifting the flaps. Can't wait for the next Alice Schertle creation.

Editorial Reviews

McElmurry's richly rendered scenes and the animals' elegant costumes conjure up a sense of nostalgia that befits Little Blue Truck's own vintage looks." -Publishers Weekly "Lovely curvy shapes and autumn colors fade to dusky blues as night falls, and children are sure to notice the traditional elements of a Halloween party: apple bobbing, lit jack-o'-lanterns, and punch and treats. Beloved Little Blue takes a bit of the mystery-and fear-out of Halloween costumes." -Kirkus "
