Is this halloween book for children? It certainly plays with lighting and shades, producing a surprasing sensation of joy. This is an original work ad hoc to november holidays.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0764160028, Hardcover)

Here's a very original fun idea for Halloween! Kids can open to any one of the book's five two-page spreads, and a silhouette nighttime scene pops up against an evocatively tinted night sky background. A miniature flashlight attached to the book's cover can be turned on in a darkened room, its glow moved around to create shadows and give spooky animation to each scene. A typical silhouette depicts a gnarled tree, where an owl takes wing as it prepares to pounce on a mouse in the shrubbery below. The scene's brief caption announces: "After dark a little mouse flees/ As an owl swoops down through the trees!" Each of the five silhouetted scene suggests the start of an eerie Halloween story, but it's up to the kids who open this book to imagine and tell original stories for themselves.
