The harvest garden is bursting with yummy veggies and lots of colorful pumpkins. The mice
are preparing for their annual Halloween night party. There are pumpkins to carve and costumes
to decorate. Everyone is excited about the get-together.
Unfortunately, there is one problem. Although he wasn't invited, Scary Cat seems to think
he's also on the guest list! Now, what are the mice going to do to keep this big, black cat
from crashing their party and munching on a few of them?
You'll have to read this picture book with your preschooler to see how the mice convey
the idea that Scary Cat is not welcome. Along with Lois Ehlert's colorful artwork, this
creative picture book also includes a special spread on identifying all the fruits and
veggies she works into her illustrations.
Children will enjoy seeing how the mice trick Scary Cat. They'll be fully captivated by this
very special Halloween treat and will probably be able to help read it aloud in very short order.
