Summary

Wearing the perfect fairy queen costume, with her friend Michael by her side, Ann Estelle is ready for a Halloween night on the town. And what a night it is--full of ghosts and mummies and witches and wizards, and lots of candy, of course.

But Halloween can also be a little bit scary, as Ann Estelle discovers when she tries trick-or-treating at the spookiest house in town. It's awfully dark up there . . . and the pathway is awfully long. Will Ann Estelle be brave enough to ring the bell?

Little trick-or-treaters will enjoy this Halloween outing that sparkles with Mary Engelbreit's signature wit and charm.

School Library Journal Review
PreS-Gr 2-This title celebrates all that is a little bit spooky on this fun holiday. Ann Estelle is dressed as a fairy queen and her friend Michael is a pirate. She does not want to admit that she is a little frightened about trick-or-treating even with her dad along. However, she eventually realizes that Michael, too, is scared, and that they can be brave together. Engelbreit has a comforting way of writing-the sentences are descriptive, but with many familiar words, and they are not too long for beginning readers. The illustrations are bright and cheery and capture the excitement that most children feel at the prospect of trick-or-treating. The bottom border on each page is filled with all of the familiar symbols of Halloween that children love.-Susan E. Murray, Glendale Public Library, AZ (c) Copyright 2010.
