Boynton celebrates Halloween!There's a big round moon in a dark, dark sky. The chickens are nervous. Do you know why?
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!”
Eek! Halloween! is a holiday favorite that's all treat and no tricks. Oversized lap edition also available—perfect for reading aloud!
“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
Sandra Boynton is a beloved American cartoonist, children’s author, songwriter, and highly sporadic short film director. Boynton has written and illustrated sixty children’s books and seven general audience books, including five New York Times bestsellers.

Boynton has also written and produced six albums of unconventional children’s music; three of her albums have been certified Gold (over 500,000 copies sold), and Philadelphia Chickens, nominated for a Grammy, has gone Platinum (over one million copies sold). Boynton has also written and directed eleven short musical films and two animated shorts, including “Tyrannosaurus Funk,” sung by Samuel L. Jackson, which won the 2018 Grand Prize for Best Children’s Animation Short from the Rhode Island International Film Festival. In 2008, Boynton received the Lifetime Achievement Award from the National Cartoonists Society. Boynton has four perfect children and an equally perfect granddaughter. Her Connecticut studio is in a converted barn that has perhaps the only hippopotamus weathervane in America.
