Booklist Monthly Selections - #1 September 2000

Ages 2-5. On his first Halloween night, a little mouse outside by himself has a series of frights in this wonderfully rhythmic picture book. Each new sound or sight terrifies Mouse until its source is revealed: "Down on the ground, / Mouse heard something moving--/ Rustle! Rustle! Rustle! / `Eeek!' Mouse squeaked. / What could it be?/ [page turn] Tumbling leaves! / That's all. / Not so scary after all." The repetition of this pattern of words sets up a cadence that young children will find both pleasing and comforting. The illustrations, which appear to be acrylics on canvas, build up layers of dark, warm color lit with lighter shades and, occasionally, white highlights. The rounded shapes of the little mouse and his world add to the cozy feeling that underlies the light pretense of scariness. From the author and illustrator of Mouse's First Christmas (1999), this is a fine Halloween read-aloud for young children who like the idea of a scary book, but need plenty of reassurance along the way.

When Mouse takes a walk one spooky night, he sees and hears creepy, rustling things. As he investigates, he discovers they are merely bats or leaves--""not so scary after all."" Then he hears a knocking and finds trick-or-treaters. The resolution to the story is shown in the appropriately dark, whimsical illustrations when Mouse returns home with a piece of candy corn.

PW Review 2003 August #1

And new to board book format is Lauren Thompson's Mouse's First Halloween, illus. by Buket Erdogan. To the refrain of "Eeek!"/ Mouse squeaked," Mouse finds reasonable explanations for the scary sounds he hears. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
