Read full description of the books Spooky Night:Cross-hatch, textured illustrations are the highlight of this story of a black cat. We recently read Spooky and the Wizard's Bats and it wasn't until I posted my review here on Goodreads that I realized that the book was one of a series of five books featuring Spooky. So we decided to put this first book on hold at our local library, too.
This is a strange, but entertaining book about a cat who has escaped from a witch and comes to live with a family right at Halloween. The illustrations are colorful, with a mottled, almost pointilistic style. The story is fun to read aloud and we enjoyed reading this book together.
