BOOK NOOK REVIEWS: Marjorie Dennis Murray






Title: Halloween Night
Author: Marjorie Dennis Murray
Illustrator: Brandon Dorman
Publisher: Greenwillow Books
Ages: 4 to 8


“Twas Halloween night, and all through the house
Every creature was stirring, including the mouse;”




Everyone from the witch to the banshees are getting ready for the best Halloween party ever. Too bad they never thought to warn their guests about what to expect on the scariest night of the year!


Why you should read it:


Rich artwork by illustrator Brandon Dorman combine with a tantalizingly familiar tale by author Marjorie Dennis Murray about getting ready for party guests to arrive. It’s minutes before midnight and everyone in the old haunted house is getting ready to party. I enjoyed all the colorful pictures but it was the whimsical, rhyming storyline that kept me flipping the pages just to see how this would end. I especially liked the look on the party guests’ faces when the old witch opened the door to invite them in!
