    " What a fun and spooky story. This book would definitely be fun to read around Halloween time in the classroom. It contains every scary creature you can imagine from ghosts, to bats, to witches, and cats. I enjoyed reading the book, mainly because it is a rhyming book. I also really liked the illustrations of all the spooky characters. I think kids will get a thrill out of this one, as well as be a little spooked. The end had a little twist, with cats lurking throughout the book. I liked the story and though it was cute. "

    " Scary, Scary Halloween is a book that I used to read with my dad every year. It is written in verse, with one page per spread, and the illustrations are beautiful with just the right amount of creepiness for young readers. I remember being captivated by the first page, which features two eyes peering out of the darkness and the line, "I peer outside, there's something there / That makes me shiver, spikes my hair / It must be Halloween." This is a great book for parents who want to introduce their young children to the concept of Halloween. "

    " Any seasonal book that is still a favorite after 20 years can be deemed a classic in my book. Surprise narrators. "

    " Jan Brett is an amazing illustrator "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Crystal Marcos | 11/18/2013

    " I enjoyed Scary, Scary Halloween. It is full of all the Halloween staples. The green eyes were intriguing and I was pleasantly surprised to find out who they belonged to. It is a good book to get you in the Halloween mood. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rita | 11/11/2013

    " My favorite Halloween book. Engrossing plot (twist at the end) and gorgeous illustrations. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Heather Kephart | 8/12/2013

    " My four year old son makes me read this to him every night - and it's January! "

    " Some thing (or things) wait under the porch for all the trick-or-treating monsters to be done with their candy-grabbing. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Cheryl in CC NV | 1/23/2013

    " 2.5 stars. Jan Brett toned down her usual complex illustrative style a lot for this. The "surprise" at the end is ok. I don't think I'd buy this one for my classroom library, sorry. Not bad, just not as good as it might have been. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alice | 10/13/2012

    " Excellent "scary" book for children! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heather | 8/3/2012

    " 29 months - we quite liked this one. Not really scary but fun to read and we liked discovering who belonged to the green eyes. O like the ending as it reminded her of Jacob. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Krista the Krazy Kataloguer | 5/26/2012

    " Well, Jan Brett's illustrations really make this story. I always make the kids in story time try to guess whose eyes are those peeking out from under the porch. The littlest ones always guess "mom and dad" or "grandma" rather than an animal! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Eva Leger | 5/4/2012

    " Cute little rhyming Halloween book. Julia enjoyed it, it was fun to read, the best part was the end when you find out who exactly is telling the story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kathryn | 4/26/2012

    " Such a fun book that starts out with these four sets of eyes peeking out from the dark. The last page is the best and Jan Brett's pictures are so fantastic. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sally | 3/18/2012

    " I took Mandy and Peter to meet Jan Brett, the illustrator of Scary, Scary Halloween back in 1989. I still have our autographed book! "

    " enjoyed very much but wouldn't use in public library setting due to devils and witches and such. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Natalie | 8/17/2011

    " The goblins in this are awesome! It really is a little scary, I would spare the itty-bitties this one. "

    " Do your students get excited about Halloween? I know I do! This is a great book to read to a class at the end of the day on Halloween. It will get them excited and talking about what kinds of scary creatures they will be. "

    " Another book with cats in it, but they really only appear on the last page. Moira seems to like the fact that it rhymes more then anything. The pictures are by Jan Brett, which I like "
