Mary Engelbreit, |
Queen of Halloween
Mary Engelbreit has already crafted a popular series of books featuring Ann Estelle in various situations and settings. This time, Ann Estelle is going trick-or-treating with her brother Michael and her dad.
Ann Estelle is, of course, a fairy queen. Michael is a pirate. Both are sworn to be brave, despite the many ghosts and witches running up and down their neighborhood streets.
They finally convince their father to let them go up to a door and ring the bell by themselves. But they never thought it would be so scary without him.
Queen of Halloween is a treat of a story for very young readers. Never even slightly scary, the book teaches a lesson about courage. Engelbreit's bright and cheerful illustrations make it even more fun to read.
