Summary
One Halloween night, little Hannah Marie ventures out for Trick or Treats alongside her rotten older cousin, Jimmy. Unhappy to be saddled with Hannah, Jimmy cooks up a scheme to frighten her home early. But his plan backfires when Hannah gets help from the coolest spooks around - including her own personal Scary Godmother!
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "*Starred Review* It's not every day you see a work that manages to capture universal themes and imagery in a distinct and wonderfully sophisticated style, and that reinvents the familiar in a wild crackle of creative energy. But you'll see it four times over in this new collection compiling all four of Thompson's original Scary Godmother stories plus extra goodies. Told in often-rhyming prose and word balloons on vibrant pages that balance a visually lavish picture book aesthetic with sequential-art page composition, the stories burst with complex color tones and creepy cartoon figures. Whether little Hannah is giving the mean big kids a scare with the help of Scary Godmother, putting a stop to cousin Jimmy's Grinchian plan to stop Halloween from coming, helping find out who Scary Godmother's secret admirer is, or taking over Halloween chores when the Boo Flu strikes, the wonder of secret childhood friends and the thrill of ghosts and goblins are magically evoked and rendered. With a sense of weird, Seussian fun, Thompson casts Halloween monsters as the most inviting group of playmates ever, and young readers will want to visit them again and again. This book deserves a prime place in every graphic novel collection.--Karp, Jesse Copyright 2010 Booklist"
