Is It Any Good?

Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

This fun, fresh look at Halloween night spoofs both parents' protective streak and kids' resistance to cautious measures that would keep a child warm and safe. The story is told in zippy rhymes and playfully illustrated, emphasizing the changing emotions of both the boy and his imagined self as Frankenstein. The back and forth between imagination and reality is a clever, entertaining motif, and should be easy to grasp, even for little ones.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
