A rollicking, rhyming Halloween romp—in every color!
What color is Halloween? Why, it’s as green as an “eerie glow, evil grin, vile brew, clammy skin,” as white as “cobwebs clinging, a misty trail, a skull, a spook, a face gone pale . . .” Children will learn their colors as they follow a cute little creature on his adventure through haunted halls, moonlit forests . . . perhaps even a Halloween party! Jimmy Pickering’s stylized settings and adorable monsters add a blast of colorful creepy-crawliness that will make kids giggle. Who knew that learning colors could be such spooky fun?

Editorial Reviews

The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books, October 2014"This creative color concept book uses Halloween as a vehicle for exploring a wide spectrum of shades. . . The depictions of spooky Halloween characters are definitely more silly than scary, making this an excellent choice for little ones . . . There is plenty of readaloud potential here."Booklist, August 1, 2014:"Can colors other than orange and black be associated with Halloween? Upbeat rhymes make the case for a multihued holiday . . . A solid and fun read-aloud."Kirkus Reviews, August 1, 2014: "A bright new addition to the Halloween shelves."
