Read full description of the books:
I was reading this book for the Goodreads Children’s Book Club and it was an alright read. “Scary, Scary Halloween” is a Halloween children’s book by Eve Bunting along with illustrations by Jan Brett and it details the true spirit of Halloween as children are seen dressed up in different Halloween creatures while a pair of green eyes watch their every move. “Scary, Scary Halloween” might have beautiful illustrations, but the story is a bit too average for some children.
Jan Brett’s illustrations were always so beautiful and realistic in most of her books and they are most certainly beautiful in this book! I love the illustrations of all the children being dressed up in different Halloween costumes such as a skeleton, a pair of green faced witches and a red devil. The backgrounds in the illustrations are equally as beautiful and haunting as the characters themselves as the background has a dark blue sky and gorgeous trees which truly captures the haunting spirit of Halloween. The images that truly stood out the most in this book were the images of the haunting green eyes that were lurking among the bushes watching the children go out and trick or treat and many children and adults would enjoy spending the entire book trying to figure out who the green eyes belong to.
Even though I thought that Eve Bunting’s poetic storytelling is cute, it did not really have any kind of effect on me or the plot of the story. The story seemed sort of plain as while it makes the children look like they were actual monsters, the fact is, many parents and some children might already have figure out that they are just children in disguise and that might take away the excitement of the story. Also, the ending seem a bit off and I will not reveal to you whose green eyes those belong to, but it felt like that the characters who have the green eyes were not interesting since you have seen these characters before and therefore, the ending did not really provide a shock or surprise twist that would have many people getting into the book.
Overall, “Scary, Scary Halloween” may have beautiful illustrations by Jan Brett, but the story itself is a bit too bland and predictable for some children to handle.

Bunting went to school in Ireland and grew up with storytelling. In Ireland, “There used to be Shanachies… the shanachie was a storyteller who went from house to house telling his tales of ghosts and fairies, of old Irish heroes and battles still to be won. Maybe I’m a bit of a Shanchie myself, telling stories to anyone who will listen.” This storytelling began as an inspiration for Bunting and continues with her work.
