Boynton celebrates Halloween!
A new addition to the Boynton on Board series, with over 21 million copies sold, Eek! Halloween! is all treat and no tricks, a journey with Boynton and her nutty characters through the tradition of Halloween.
It starts with an uh-oh—the chickens are nervous! Strange things are happening. One chicken saw a pumpkin with flickering eyes, another spied a mouse of enormous size. They all saw a wizard and a witch, and a spooky robot. “WHAT’S GOING ON HERE? WHAT DOES IT MEAN? / Relax, silly chickens! It’s HALLOWEEN!”
“Kids anticipating their first Halloween will be easily convinced....that the upcoming holiday is full of spooky fun.” —School Library Journal
“The pigs are cute, and the coloring and illustrations evoke a warmth...emphasizing all the fun Halloween has to offer. An excellent, rounded effort from a creator who knows how to deliver. (Board book. 1-3)”—Kirkus Reviews
“With humorous rhymes and boisterous, expressive drawings, “EEK! Halloween!” is a treat.” —The Washington Post
