Poems for Halloween
Illustrated by Karen Dismukes
Jack o' lantern,
Jack o' light.
Jack o' darkness,
Jack o' night.
Thrillsome, shocking, bewitching -- Halloween! It's the only night of the year when a being can truly be . . . itself! But Halloween's not just for goblins. Read along and see for yourself as bats, witches, daring adventurers, even ordinary kids (especially ordinary kids) come out for tricks and treats. Spooky fun poems and winning hand-beaded illustrations perfectly capture the spirit of this much-loved holiday.
"Kids who enjoy the spooky side of Halloween will find this a treat."
-- Kirkus Reviews
"From skeletons to vampires, the creepy icons of Halloween are presented in this collection of short, engaging poems . . . . Fresh, straightforward collections of short, Halloween-themed poetry are always welcome additions and this one is particularly handsome."
-- School Library Journal
"As in From the Doghouse, the fabric and bead artwork brings to life a collection of poems on haunting topics."
