Eek! Halloween! (Boynton on Board)
In this holiday favorite, it’s time for Halloween in a board book that’s all treat and no tricks from the one and only Sandra Boynton.
Strange things are happening. One chicken saw a pumpkin with flickering eyes, another spied a mouse of enormous size. They all saw a wizard and a witch, and a spooky robot, too. “WHAT’S GOING ON HERE? WHAT DOES IT MEAN? Relax, silly chickens! It’s HALLOWEEN!”
There’s a big round moon
in a dark, dark sky.
The chickens are nervous.
Do you know why?
