Synopsis: A preschool-aged boy tells about last year when the arrival of ghouls and monsters at his door for trick-or-treating scared him. This year, he is dressed and ready to be scary himself. Rhyming, poetic text illustrated with appealing pastel drawings on black paper. An excellent read-aloud for thinking about coping with fears and new experiences and for fun on Halloween.
