This delightfully illustrated children's story is sure to become a tradition for you and your family as October rolls around each year. It will be a helpful tool to instruct children on the important historical background behind this holiday and to reflect on what is important.

"The books are warm and engaging. The tone is kind, reverent and at times, really funny. The illustrations are beautiful. These books are gorgeous and again, at times, funny. (The illustrations made my son laugh out loud.)"

"A delightful book dealing not with goblins and witches, but with the true meaning of Halloween ... I adore the cute illustrations and the delightful way the author has explained the holiday in easy- to-understand passages that are often funny and always charming ... The author's lyrical writing makes for a fun and delightful book that is fun to read without being scary or violent, and one that children will turn to again and again."

"This book is delightful! ... Best of all, Soraya shares Scripture at the beginning of the story and at the end. Not only that, but she dedicates a page to celebrating Jesus and leading the reader to Jesus in a very sweet way. I really liked this and the story just seems to naturally lead to this. It's just perfect ... Any child would love this story and these adorable illustrations! I give this book 5 out of 5 stars."

"The illustrations clearly describe the history of Halloween in a fun and understandable way for kids. My favorite part of the book, however is at the end where Soraya includes an invitation for the child to make Jesus Lord of his/her life."
