Kids say (1 ):

The facial expressions and over-the-top emotions when small things go wrong are pitch-perfect here, for young readers and their parents alike. Trick or Treat, Crankenstein captures the big feelings of small kids, and the urgency of all their emotions. A few of the things that turn Crankenstein's day bad hit harder, like when he feels small and embarrassed standing next to someone wearing a better version of his costume. The illustrations are exuberant and expressive, packed with color and lots of fun details to make for a great read-aloud, even outside of Halloween season.

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.
