I Love Halloween
Woo-hoo! There’s so much spooky stuff to do at Halloween. You can carve a pumpkin, bake ghostly cookies, go trick-or-treating in a brilliant costume – and eat plenty of yummy sweets! Finally, it’s time for some cuddles with Mummy and up to bed, because even little monsters need their sleep!
Giles Andreae and Emma Dodd have created a number of adorable, reassuring and cuddly books, which always have at their heart the close bond between toddlers and parents or carers.
In this story, the little boy has a brilliant time taking part in all the Halloween fun, but just like any other day, Mum and Dad are on hand to make sure his reliable nightly routine stays on track. The illustrations are sweet and the simple text rhymes give the book a lovely singsong effect when read aloud.
