Angelina's Halloween

Publisher: Penguin

Angelina and her friends love Halloween - they make sparkly firefly costumes and have a lovely tea party with goblin biscuits and scary games. Angelina's little sister Polly wants to be a firefly too, but Angelina says she's too small and clumsy, so her mother makes Polly a spooky Halloween costume instead. Polly ends up giving Angelina a real fright when she gets lost in an old haunted house - but she is soon found and Angelina promises Polly her very own firefly costume next year.

Helen Craig's delicate and intricate illustrations beautifully conjur up the Halloween atmosphere and are full of detail children will love to explore. Older sisters in particular will relate to this delightful story about siblings.
