Franklin is excited for Halloween! He's got a great idea for a costume and he's going to go to a party with his friends and then go trick-or-treating. Everything is set for a great day...as long as nothing too scary happens!
Franklin's Halloween is a book that I can see being read in bedrooms, libraries, and classrooms all over the country at this time of year. There are lots of classic Halloween themes: the importance of choosing the perfect costume, wanting to be scared (but not too scared), the friend who gets sick and has to miss out on trick-or-treating. Franklin's Halloween was originally published in 1996, but it easily speaks to kids' experiences fifteen years later.
I read a review copy at NetGalley courtesy of Kids Can Press and Open Road Media. (They're partnering to bring Franklin e-Books to a new generation of readers.)
