Feminism meets Halloween? Not exactly, but in this classic story the little old lady truly isn’t scared of anything. In spite of being stalked through the woods, she refuses to be bullied by any number of Halloween spooks and works the situation to her advantage in the end.
Strong female lead characters weren’t exactly the order of the day in the 80s; so this one stands out. Predictable text and repeated words (yes this was a product of the Whole Language heyday) definitely target this book toward the preschool/Kindergarten crowd. But even my first graders got a laugh out of it.
