Happy Halloween Stinky Face: 12/15/07
Sean likes Halloween themed books. He has about a dozen of them. He also adores I Love You, Stinky Face, a favorite book to borrow from his school. So when I saw Happy Halloween Stinky Face for sale, I had to get a copy for him.
Stinky Face is getting ready for Halloween and his (or her, it's never made clear) mother has to field a long string of trick-or-treat related questions. As with the first book, Mama always manages a kind and creative answer to Stinky Face's questions. I often wish I could come up with Mama's witty responses when Sean is flinging run-on-sentence questions at me.
Cyd Moore's illustrations bring to life Stinky Face's wild questions and his mother's equally creative answers. I think my favorite illustration is of Stinky Face's sister flying over the neighborhood, unable to trick-or-treat because she is so high in the air.
If you're a fan of the Stinky Face books or have a young one who adores Halloween themed stories as much as mine does, get yourself a copy of I Love You Stinky Face by Lisa McCourt with illustrations by Cyd Moore.
