Halloween Mice (Reprint) by Bethany Roberts -ADVISABLE

Roberts, Bethany and Illustrated by Cushman, Doug  Halloween Mice (Reprint) 32 pgs. HMH Books for Young Readers; Reprint edition, 2014. $3.99 Content: Language: G (0 swears); Mature Content: G Violence: G
A little group of mice travel at night to a pumpkin patch to celebrate Halloween. They are all dressed up and just as they start to party –a cat shows up. By working together creatively the mice come up with a plan to scare off the cat.
This is a fun suspenseful read for beginning readers. Although this is a reprint, the artwork is still fresh and fun. The story is really cute, and I appreciate the mice being so innovative and brave. Students will love to participate with the italicized sound portions of the story. They will also love the surprise ending, and trying it out themselves!
