Is It Any Good?

Parents say: (1 ):

HALLOWEEN HUSTLE is a fun take on the typically creepy Halloween monsters, presenting them as quirky and fun and on the prowl for a good time. They dance, they cavort, and they even make a few unexpected friends on the way. Kids who enjoy Halloween and rhyming books will love this clever tale of them trying to make it to the party. The digital illustrations really humanize the monsters while retaining a just-spooky-enough vibe that entertains but doesn't frighten.

A mild warning for parents: Uttering the refrain "doing the Halloween Hustle" is required on near every page and can get a smidge repetitive. But it's unlikely any preschoolers will mind.

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.
