A Halloween Scare

A Halloween Scare in Toronto
written by Eric James
illustrated by Marina Le Ray

It's  Halloween night in Toronto and all the ghosts, beasts and witches are walking the streets.

It's not often that you find a holiday book about your home town, which is why I grabbed this off the shelf instantly.

It's such an adorable book!  The text has rhymes that make it fun to read aloud or together with your little one.  The illustrations show familiar landmarks and spaces that every Torontonian will recognize.  It's a humorous and light book. It even has a bit of a surprise in it towards the end.  I won't spoil it but I will say, a little boy faces his fears and it ends a bit spookily.
