Learning mixes with fun in the next batch of titles. Molded-plastic ghosts peek out of die-cut holes on the cover and pages of the slightly oblong paper-over-board book Five Little Ghosts by William Boniface, illus. by Jerry Smath. Children start with the quintet and count down as the ghosts dwindle with each turn of the page. In Five Little Pumpkins, a handful of costumed kids purchases the titular molded plastic quintet, one by one, and transform them into jack-o'-lanterns.
