A rollicking, rhyming Halloween romp in every color
What color is Halloween? Why, it's as green as an eerie glow, evil grin, vile brew, clammy skin, as white as cobwebs clinging, a misty trail, a skull, a spook, a face gone pale . . . Children will learn their colors as they follow a cute little creature on his adventure through haunted halls, moonlit forests . . . perhaps even a Halloween party Jimmy Pickering's stylized settings and adorable monsters add a blast of colorful creepy-crawliness that will make kids giggle. Who knew that learning colors could be such spooky fun?
