One Spooky Night: A Halloween Adventure

Kate Stone. Andrews McMeel/Accord, $11.99 (36p) ISBN 978-1-4494-0330-0
Cut pages and vellum layers combine to striking effect in this story about a little monster’s nocturnal journey. The monster isn’t afraid when an owl hoots, and he doesn’t cower at grinning jack-o’-lanterns or ghosts. The transparent layers and stained glass-style cutouts with black, yellow, and purple accents create dramatic dimension. When the monster finally arrives at a haunted house, a bright foldout reveals that he is really a boy in costume: “ ‘Happy Halloween!’ everyone cried./ ‘The party’s right here—please come inside!’ ” Ages 4–8. (Aug.)
