Searching for a Halloween book that’s not scary? Then be sure to have a peek at NOT VERY SCARY by Carol Brendler, illustrated by Greg Pizzoli, winner of the 2014 Theodor Seuss Geisel Award.

This cumulative tale is rich with repetition, alliteration, and one brave little monster – Melly – who is – well, maybe – just a teensy bit afraid. Pair this book with another cumulative Halloween classic, BIG PUMPKIN, by Erica Silverman, illustrated by S.D. Schindler, and you’ll have a winning combination.
