And Then Comes Halloween

By Tom Brenner
Illustrated by Holly Meade

"As sweet a marriage of words and pictures as you could hope for. . . . Summons a whole world attuned to the simple pleasures of a homemade Halloween." —The New York Times Book Review

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 costumemaking to trick-or-treating. Halloween lovers will be eager to join them on this lively and lyrical journey.

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.
