Ten Little Tricksters

It's only August, but I want to tell you about a book for kids about Halloween. It never hurts to plan ahead.

Ten Little Tricksters is a standard counting story with a different number of kids - or spooks - in costumes on each page. It's not really scary, but captures the fun of trick or treating so kids will love this book.

If I were rich I'd buy enough copies to give all the children who come trick or treating to my house, but I can't afford to buy that many. However every family that buys a copy will find it's a great way to get kids excited about the holiday. Preschool and Kindergarten teachers will enjoy sharing it with their classes, too.

As you can see from the cover, Kevin Collier created illustrations that show the feeling of the book perfectly.

Now you've got plenty of time to go out and get this book before Halloween.

Hi Janet, Thanks so much for the lovely review. I'm with you--if I were rich, I'd give away the book to Trick or Treaters. I hope folks will find my book and enjoy it and give it to their kids and grandkids. Thanks for your support. Penny (http://penelopeannecole.blogspot.com)

Nice review, Janet. The book is just in time to offer a counting book option as families get into the Halloween spirit. Tip of the writer's cap to both you and Penelope.
