What a clever premise. No, Halloween is not only about orange and black. "Halloween is green. Eerie glow, evil grin, vile brew, clammy skin, slimy-grimy, queasy-peasy, snottty-rottty tinge of green." The rhymes for all the colors of the rainbow follow a similar pattern, each set of images appropriate to the color and toying with hyphenated adjectives: dusky-"musky, bruisy-oozy." The colorful digital art will appeal to kids as will the creepy images. Not scary but definitely a book you can ham up with a read aloud with spooky, shivery voices. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0385369999, Hardcover)

A rollicking, rhyming Halloween romp—in every color!
 
What color is Halloween? Why, it’s as green as an “eerie glow, evil grin, vile brew, clammy skin,” as white as “cobwebs clinging, a misty trail, a skull, a spook, a face gone pale . . .” Children will learn their colors as they follow a cute little creature on his adventure through haunted halls, moonlit forests . . . perhaps even a Halloween party! Jimmy Pickering’s stylized settings and adorable monsters add a blast of colorful creepy-crawliness that will make kids giggle. Who knew that learning colors could be such spooky fun?
