Benjy Bear's Halloween

Harriet Ziefert. Candlewick Press (MA), $7.99 (10pp) ISBN 978-1-56402-885-3

Fifteen reusable vinyl stickers put kids in the director's chair for this cheerful adventure. Should Benjy carve a happy, scary or sad jack-o' lantern? Readers can dress Benjy Bear for trick-or-treating as well as control the distribution of candy when his friends come by. The stickers are appealingly versatile and match the appearance and texture of the laminated pages so closely that they really look like part of the picture. A definite treat. Ages 3-6. (Sept.)
