And Then Comes Halloween

author: Tom Brenner
illustrator: Holly Meade

As soon as geese fly south, children take autumn's cue to start their preparations: itís 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.

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

author’s comments:
Tom Brenner says of his inspiration for And Then Comes Halloween, his first book for children: ďI 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.Ē He lives on Vashon Island, Washington.

Holly Meade has illustrated many picture books, including David Elliottís 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. She lives in Sedgwick, Maine.
