I’ve yet to meet the child who doesn’t love to play “dress up.” Luckily, little ones get one special day a year in which to take that game to its ultimate—namely, Halloween. But the fun needn’t start and end on October 31st—not when Penelope Anne Cole has caught on to the spirit (no pun intended) of fun enjoyed on that holiday in Ten Little Tricksters. This creative story, offering a clever count-down from ten to one, may be used as a ready teaching aid for children at any time of year.
Ten Little Tricksters opens with ten little ghosts that “Scream! Scream! Scream!” and counts it way down through goblins, monsters, and other Halloween regulars, out to trick-or-treat. The illustrations, by Kevin Collier, bright and colorful, are engaging and age-appropriate for the intended audience.
Treat your little monsters to a copy of Penelope Anne Cole's Literary Classics award-winning Ten Little Tricksters--and the “sweetness” of the treat will be one that you, too, will enjoy!
