A jack-o-lantern stares from triangular holes: "Piece of pie,/ pumpkin eye." A brisk refrain quickens the pace: "Trick or treat—/ pounding feet,/ eerie shadows/ fill the street." Fleming (The Everything Book) kindles seasonal thoughts with concise couplets and handmade-paper images, in which vermilion and fuschia highlights glow like neon against grainy black and evergreen. Her pleasingly spooky visions of peaked roofs, pumpkins and trick-or-treaters convey an expectant atmosphere. Ages 2-5. (Sept.)
