Halloween Hustle by Charlotte Gunnufson {Children’s Book Review}


The Halloween Hustle is a amusingly fun book that children as well as adults are sure to want to add to their must read selection during the month of October. There’s definitely a great rhythm that makes the book flow very well from beginning to end.

As the story starts we are introduced to a Skeleton that receives an invitation to a FA-BOO-LOUS Dance Party hosted by Ghost. The Skeleton makes his way to the party snapping, tip-tapping, elbows flapping, all the way to the party and through the pages. Though while doing the Halloween Hustle he occasionally found himself in pieces but nothing a little tape, glue, twine, or rubber bands couldn’t remedy.

The illustrations in this book are definitely in the spirit of Halloween. The full color two page spreads my kids really enjoyed looking at. This book was totally up their alley being preschool and kindergarten aged. As for the illustrations, think fun and friendly and not creepy in the least bit. There are characters such as mummies, Frankenstein, monsters, and more all off to have a great night of fun dancing.

I’d totally recommend this to anyone looking for a fun Halloween themed book to share with children of ages.  Also if you want to know how the Halloween Hustle beat should go look up the author on Youtube and you’ll find a really fun dance video! My kids have been doing nothing but going around singing the Halloween Hustle song , dancing around the house, and begging me to read the book just one more time!
