Are you ready for Hallowilloween? With wolves, witches, and everything in between? A human collage! A shrunken head? An evil Vumpire not quite dead . . .

Praise For Hallowilloween: Nefarious Silliness from Calef Brown

"A modern master of nonsense verse reaches new heights of giddiness with this Halloween-themed collection. . . . Nefariously silly indeed."--Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"Brown's acrylic illustrations add to the creepy silliness: an artful mix of naive and stylized, whimsical details and vibrant color. Young readers will relish the wordplay and find themselves torn to choose a favorite among this wacky menagerie."--School Library Journal, starred review
