A Ghost went Trick or Treating #kidlit #bookreview #free

I picked up A Ghost Went Trick or Treating by A.J. Cosmo (written under the penname Gene Wilikers) on As of the date of this blog, it is available for a free download. My best recommendation is to grab a copy while it is still available―otherwise, it will run you $1.99, which is still a bargain!

At only 22 pages and 12 illustrations, it is a short read, but one your child will delight in. It is the perfect tale to get young ones excited about the upcoming holiday, read after a long night of trick-or-treating or as a classroom read aloud on Halloween day. 

What I enjoyed about this story is that I thought I had it all figured out, until nearly the end, when the author threw in a twist that made me smile. How many times can you say that as an adult, a child's book throws you a curve? It goes to prove that a well-written children's book can surprise us all.

The best part is that I love stories that have a message or lesson within them. This one is presented so perfectly, your child will not recognize it for what it is, but will find themselves engaged and immersed in the unfolding events. 

This book teaches children about:
  • friendship
  • bullying
  • not to judge a "book" by its cover
  • helping others
This is a book that I look forward to sharing with my young nieces. I have no doubt it will win their seal of approval as well.

Wishing you all a safe and hauntingly good time,
