And Then Comes Halloween

By Tom Brenner
Illustrated by Holly Meade

When nighttime creeps closer to suppertime, And red and gold seep into green leaves. . . . Then it’s time to decide what to be.

As soon as geese fly south, children take autumn's cue to start their preparations: it’s almost Halloween! With poetic language and vivid collage illustrations, Tom Brenner and Holly Meade follow all the familiar rituals, from hanging paper skeletons to carving pumpkins, from costume-making to trick-or-treating. Halloween lovers will be eager to grab a bag or bucket and join them on this lively and lyrical journey.

  • A gently spooky Halloween book
  • A lyrical read-aloud

About the author

Tom Brenner says of his inspiration for And Then Comes Halloween, his first book for children: “I watched October dress up for one last colorful romp before winter and felt the wild energy that sends kids out wearing capes or weird hats to rule the street for a night.” He lives on Vashon Island, Washington.

About the illustrator

Holly Meade (1956-2013) illustrated many picture books, including David Elliott’s On the Farm as well as the Caldecott Honor-winning Hush! A Thai Lullaby and its follow-up, Peek! A Thai Hide-and-Seek, both by Minfong Ho.
