What did you like about the book? In rhyming text we follow five black cats on a spooky adventure. The cats all end up at a spooky house where they have a few scares before finding themselves at a party. “All of sudden, someone turns on the light. What a surprise – it’s the ghosts’ party night!” The illustrations are filled with Halloween staples such as bats, spiders, and owl, ghosts, jack-o-lanterns, ghosts, a witch and a skeleton. The book is just spooky enough for young children. A nice addition to Halloween themed titles.
Anything you didn’t like about it? At times the rhyme can become a little forced, but overall it scans well.
To whom would you recommend this book? This is a fun, slightly spooky tale for very young children. A nice addition to Halloween story times for babies and toddlers.

Should we (librarians/readers) put this at the top of our “to read” piles? No
