One shy bunny, afraid to trick-or-treat alone, literally bumps into another timid bunny along the way. The two make a brave pair, and the night becomes a lot less scary. Dark, full-page acrylics are punctuated with vibrant, unexpected colors. A short rhyming text using onomatopoeia makes this not-too-scary tale a fine read-aloud.

PreS-K— Neophyte trick-or-treaters might be just a tad nervous about the things that go boo in the night, but this story should go a long way toward alleviating their discomfort. Two nervous rabbits meet on Halloween night. "One bunny quivers./One bunny shivers./One big door./One hissing cat./Two small bunnies/tap,/tap,/tap." Mack's illustrations are a delicious contrast of dark backgrounds, spooky shapes, and bright fuzzy rabbits in their costumes. The theme is that what's frightening for an individual is bearable "and even fun" when you have a companion. The vivid color contrasts and direct, face-your-fears story are reminiscent of Susan L. Roth's Night-Time Numbers (Barefoot, 1999).—Susan Weitz, formerly at Spencer-Van Etten School District, Spencer, NY
