What's Eek! Halloween! About

Publisher Summary

Boynton celebrates Halloween!

A new addition to the Boynton on Board series, with over 21 million copies sold, Eek! Halloween! is all treat and no tricks, a journey with Boynton and her nutty characters through the tradition of Halloween.

It starts with an uh-oh—the chickens are nervous! 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. “WHAT’S GOING ON HERE? WHAT DOES IT MEAN? / Relax, silly chickens! It’s HALLOWEEN!”

Mom of boys. Lover of Harry Potter, Jane Austen and believes one can never own too many children's books!

4.0 / 7.0

I’m a huge fan of Sandra Boyton books and her signature style, but this is possibly my least favorite. We’ll contentedly read it around Halloween time, but it’s not one that makes the cut year round.

Book-loving mommy-to-be! Recently enjoyed The Hobbit, Becoming, and The Marvelous Magic of Miss Mabel.

I think this Halloween book is perfect for littles who don’t want anything with creepy text or scary monsters in it. Playful, funny, and perfect for all those Sandra Boynton fans.

Halloween can be frightening for toddlers and this book approaches that uncertainty with humor and fun. Sandra Boynton perfectly captures the aspects of dressing up that can be worrisome for the Pre-K set and presents them in a non-threatening way allowing for rational assessment. If we had had this book in our library years ago I imagine that “Relax, silly chickens!” might have become a familiar family refrain.
