Trick or Treat, Alistair Gray by Lindy Ryan is the perfect book for children for the upcoming Halloween holiday! I am a fan of Halloween, probably my favorite holiday. Full of Autumn colors and enough spookiness, keeping in the theme of Halloween, but also a lesson to be learned. While most of love the dark and gloomy colors of the time enough to make a person’s spine tingle with fright, this book does not do that.Alistair Gray leaves the school carnival, not happy that the carnival doesn’t give him the creeps like he was expecting, his walk home he grumbles that Halloween isn’t silly, it should be scary!The story teaches us that Halloween can be spooky but it can also be a lot of fun. This book was very reminiscent of Tim Burton, with the illustrations right on the mark. I think that a child would enjoy this book, of course, having Mom and Dad there to read it with the child, maybe kind of spooky, depending on the age, but again, spookiness can be fun!I loved it, although I think it would have been better to have the print book in my hands the ebook was good too!
