Read full description of the books:
The woodland witches who first appeared in Adrienne Adams' A Woggle of Witches return in this adorable Halloween picture-book (they're even sleeping in the same hammocks, strung between the trees!), inviting a group of children to a holiday extravaganza. With a pumpkin tower built around a tree, delightful treats like toad tarts, and a special aerial surprise at the end, the witch's gathering turns out to be one Halloween happening that the young guests will never forget!
Unsurprisingly, given my fondness for her work, I really enjoyed Adrienne Adams' illustrations in A Halloween Happening, particularly the scene in which the witches are just waking up (in those hammocks! how I love the idea of those witchy hammocks!), and the one in which the children climb the inside of the pumpkin tower, in their wonderful trick-or-treating costumes. That said, the narrative here leaves a little bit to be desired, consisting almost entirely of dialogue. I'm not sure, really, that it makes for that engaging a story. Still, Adrienne Adams' fans will enjoying poring over the artwork!
