Five Silly Ghosts

Hilli Kushnir. HMH, $6.99 (12p) ISBN 978-1-328-86659-2

Five costumed, glittery ghosts float their way through this Halloween rhyme. The friendly ghosts encounter “witches in the air” and, once they arrive on the steps of a house, are “ready for some fun.” Kushnir’s cartoon art features festive hues, and readers can peek through die-cuts to see what comes next. A final verse ends on a note just shy of spooky: “ ‘Wooooooo,’ went the wind,/ and out went the lights./ And the five silly ghosts/ flew out of sight.” Ages up to 3. (July)
