Powell-Tuck and Guile offer a “no scares here” Halloween celebration featuring ultra-cute animals that include a ladybug, owl, fox, and squirrel. Dressed in wizard and jack-o’-lantern costumes, they frolic across the pages and take part in traditional activities like bobbing for apples and trick-or-treating. Cozy details, like the tiny star-tipped magic wand the ladybug waves, and upbeat rhymes (“Pumpkins laugh, pumpkins giggle,/ Pumpkins dance and pumpkins jiggle”) make for a sugary-sweet holiday read. Ages 2–5. (Sept.)
