by Jim Murphy. Wonderful detailed color illustrations by John Manders. Decorated end pages.
Condition: NEW 2006 Clarion hard cover (pictorial boards) & DJ (in mylar jacket), second printing. Tiny edge wear to DJ top edge.
Content: A slightly scary, always amusing story about a lazy, good-for-nothing lad named Fergus O'Mara who offers only excuses when his mother asks him to do some chores. Then he blithely saunters off to town for a bit of play. Gouache and colored-pencil illustrations skillfully reveal his jaunty demeanor; his remarkably flexible body exudes action and attitude. Suddenly, he encounters a hooded Night-Demon with a lethal-looking scythe who declares, It is your time, Fergus O'Mara! The lad is only briefly frightened before he dismisses him as a bad dream. Soon, Fergus meets the demon again; now it looms over him and its red glowing eyes are revealed. Increasingly dramatic images, served up in shades of green, blue, and brown, convey the rising tension in the story. Amusingly, when told to dig his own grave, Fergus seems more concerned that he be rid of this hard work than frightened of his predicament. However, after he outwits the demon, he unexpectedly resolves to be the hardest working lad
hereabouts. This sudden repentance appears to happen because he fears that the demon will come looking for him again. Children will appreciate this humorous ghost story; it makes a good read-aloud choice. Grades 2-4. [1 copy available]

text and by Felicia Bond.
Condition: Gently pre-read 2000 Scholastic soft cover, third printing. Light shelf wear.
Content: Roger is listening carefully backstage. The auditorium is packed. Three more lines, then two, then one, and he's on! Roger the mouse has a very important role in the school Halloween play, even if it is the smallest part. He and his classmates have practiced for days to get all their moves just right. And tonight they'll reap the rewards with their runaway success. For those who have waited nervously behind the stage curtain, counting the lines leading up to their cue, this book is a must. Sweet, simple, and so true, it captures the taut emotions of a schoolchild preparing for public appearance, and the wild release of a job well done. Bond uses minimal text on each page. Her adorable, warmly colored illustrations of the tiny, earnest ghosts and wizards speak louder than words, and, along with the play's audience, young readers will laugh when they're "supposed to" and applaud madly for this smash sensation. Forget Broadway: a star is born right here! (Ages 4 to 8)

TRICK OR TREAT, SMELL MY FEET
written & color illustrations by Diane de Groat.
Condition: NEW 1998 Morrow Junior Books soft cover, third printing.
Content: Having packed his Martian Space Pilot costume in his bag, Gilbert, the hedgehog, trots off to school for a holiday parade and party. Imagine his dismay when he discovers that he has taken his sister Lola's sack and her pink ballerina outfit by mistake. As five of his classmates also decided to be Martian Space Pilots, it's not an unmitigated disaster-so he squeezes into the tutu and toughs it out, encountering surprise but not a trace of derision from his peers. Well, it could happen. De Groat moves her human-proportioned animal cast between a comfortable suburban neighborhood dotted with colorful autumn leaves and a school restroom where the boys change clothes. However skeptical they may be of the mild reaction to Gilbert's costume, young viewers will enjoy the glimpses of loudly colored underwear (plus, for many girls, exotic bathroom plumbing). Despite severely undersized tights, Gilbert isn't made to look all that ludicrous or uncomfortable. [1 copy available]
