Bruce is back! And he’s ready to be crotchety about Halloween. Bruce dislikes all holidays and all fun things, really. His family of mice and geese—who imprinted on Bruce as their mother in the first book of the series, Mother Bruce—try to get him in the Halloween spirit by telling him a spooky campfire story. Then, a ghostly visitor appears, and hilarity ensues.
As is typical for a Bruce book, there’s lots of humor for both kids and parents, and there’s a whole lot of heart in this kid friendly satire written and illustrated by Ryan T. Higgins and based on The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. This is a wonderful picture book.
