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.
illustrator’s comments:
Holly Meade (1956-2013) 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.
