'TWAS THE FRIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS

Judy Sierra, Author, Liz Van Doren, Editor, Will Hillenbrand, Illustrator , illus. by Will Hillenbrand. Harcourt/Gulliver $16 (32p) ISBN 978-0-15-201805-4

'Twas the night before Christmas and not only is a mouse stirring, he is delivering gifts to a haunted house and driving a sleigh powered by eight tiny bats in Sierra and Hillenbrand's (collaborators for The House that Drac Built) gigglishly ghoulish, Halloween-inspired rendition of Moore's Christmas classic. After initially blaming one another for interrupting their long winter's naps, the werewolf, zombie, mummy and pals soon make nice, encouraged by the tiny rodent with a red cap. Readers will enjoy tracking the mostly unnarrated progress of the mouse amid the funny and dynamic mixed-media paintings. Ages 3-7. (Oct.)
