The Halloween Kittens by Maggie Kneen features flaps that hide glittery surprises la her previous The Hanukkah Mice and The Christmas Surprise. As the Cat family preps for their bash, kittens Trick and Treat get underfoot: ""Mother carries baskets/ with candy treats to share./ But Trick and Treat/ are missing./ Where is the/ mischievous pair?"" Die-cuts in the flaps offer a glimpse of the sparkly textures beneath. (Oct.) .
