Praise For Little Blue Truck's Halloween…
"The children demand anthropomorphic vehicles. And among them, none is as adorable as the vintage blue pick-up in the Little Blue Truck series.... [T]he only thing that would make these books cuter is if the truck only ever spoke in 'beeps'—and he does!" —The A.V. Club
"McElmurry’s richly rendered scenes and the animals’ elegant costumes conjure up a sense of nostalgia that befits Little Blue Truck’s own vintage looks." —Publishers Weekly
"Lovely curvy shapes and autumn colors fade to dusky blues as night falls, and children are sure to notice the traditional elements of a Halloween party: apple bobbing, lit jack-o'-lanterns, and punch and treats. Beloved Little Blue takes a bit of the mystery—and fear—out of Halloween costumes." —Kirkus
