School Library Journal Review
PreS-K-Neophyte trick-or-treaters might be just a tad nervous about the things that go boo in the night, but this story should go a long way toward alleviating their discomfort. Two nervous rabbits meet on Halloween night. "One bunny quivers./One bunny shivers./One big door./One hissing cat./Two small bunnies/tap,/tap,/tap." Mack's illustrations are a delicious contrast of dark backgrounds, spooky shapes, and bright fuzzy rabbits in their costumes. The theme is that what's frightening for an individual is bearable "and even fun" when you have a companion. The vivid color contrasts and direct, face-your-fears story are reminiscent of Susan L.

Booklist Review
With a very simple, shivery rhyme and bright shapes on black double-page spreads, this picture book brings toddlers the creepy fun of Halloween. One bunny quivers / One bunny shivers as the two dare to go trick-or-treating together in the dark night. Branches loom, lights glare, and the bunnies glimpse a hungry eye and crooked teeth and hear bones rattle in the quiet. When they tap at the door of a house, a big black cat hisses at them, the door creaks open, and they hold each other's paws tightly, but what they find isn't so scary. They get a warm welcome and lots of treats. The neon-colored shapes that evoke monsters, set against the dark shiny backgrounds, will appeal to young preschoolers, who will also enjoy the spooky drama in the words.--Rochman, Hazel Copyright 2008 Booklist
