As much a game as a book, this is lots of fun to read, and lots of fun to look at too. Two little children, a boy and a girl, are all dressed up and ready to go trick or treating. The meet all sorts of creatures – a creepy, sleepy spider, a naughty, warty toad, a wizard’s noisy owl and a sliding, gliding ghost. Young readers can join in as the growing list is repeated on each page, and there’s a super surprise ending too. With its engaging text and gorgeous illustrations this will put everyone in the mood for Hallowe’en. A definite treat!
I went trick-or-treating and I scared... a naughty, warty toad, a sliding, gliding ghost, a howling, growling wolf and some super silly skeletons...
When a brother and sister go trick-or-treating, they compete to see who can scare the creepiest creatures. As they try to remember each hair-raising encounter, everything escalates - until they get the biggest fright of all! A new take on an old favourite, children will love this laugh-out-loud, test-your-memory story, with ghosts, skeletons, a spooky pirate ship and much, much more!
From the illustrator of the bestselling The Owl Who Was Afraid of the Dark, this is a hilarious follow-up to I Went to the Supermarket and I Went to See Santa.
