This Librarian's Quick Picks: Bramble and Maggie - Spooky Season

Candlewick (Aug. 12, 2014)
Early chapter book


The scarecrow erected in the neighbor’s yard is supposed to scare birds, not horses! How will Bramble be brave enough to go trick or treating with Maggie on Halloween?

Why You'll Love It:
  •  It's an original Halloween story for newly independent readers or for reading aloud to younger children.
  • Dialogue, Maggie's occasional reflections, and a bit of onomatopoeia allow the narrative text to flow nicely as a trusting relationship develops between horse and rider.
  • Softly colored gouache illustrations illuminate expressions and follow the action from a variety of perspectives and have appropriate visual clues and generous white space for younger readers.
Who Should Read It:

Great for grades K-2.
