By the Light of the Halloween Moon by Caroline Stutson. il Kevin Hawkes.
Lothrop, Lee & Shepard Books/William Morrow & Company: NY, 1993.

I usually steer clear of holiday books, but for someone looking to celebrate the day this cumulative poem can be fun. It's not your standard Halloween book. I think the illustrations are the best part. That, the tempting toes, and the whack the girl gives at the end. The illustrations tell more of a tale than does the poem, as each character is tempted by the wiggling toes. The pictures are more crisp than most of Hawkes' books, and they steal the show.
RL=1st-2nd, mostly read aloud to toddler-1st
