Halloween Book Review/Giveaway: Who’s There, Little Hoo? Ends Oct 31st

About the Author: Brenda Ponnay is a stealthy secret agent who juggles parenthood to her adorable daughter by day and freelance graphic design/illustration by night. Whether it’s painting, baking, drawing, making castles out of cardboard boxes or just doing the laundry with flair, Brenda Ponnay has learned that what really makes her happy is being creative every single day. You can read about all her crazy adventures on her personal blog: Brenda is the super-sneaky author and illustrator behind a number of children’s ebooks from Xist Publishing including the Time for Bunny Series, Who’s There, Little Hoo? and Secret Agent Josephine’s Numbers.

Who’s There, Little Hoo? By Brenda Ponnay

About the Book: Poor Little Hoo is afraid to open his door on Halloween night. Join him and his friends as they get ready for a Party!

My Review: “Knock! Knock! Who’s there little Hoo? Is it a scary ghost? No, silly! It’s your friend Wooly Bear!” Its Halloween night, and Little Hoo is startled with each knock on the door who turns out to be his friends dressed up in Halloween costumes.

The illustrations are bold and fun which helps tell the story.

  2. my daughter just started sitting down long enough to read short stories with me, this would be a great book to add to our collection. This will be her first time trick or treating and going to the doors and knocking without her big brother. maybe this will give her more courage to knock by herself.

  8. This would be a great addition to my classroom to help little ones understand Halloween. I’m sure it would be a popular read aloud book.

  9. My grandson needs to read a book like this. He’s always very scared the couple of times he’s been out with Mom and Dad because of the kids in their costumes. 🙂 They now stick to the trunk trick or treating at the local school and firehouse. This looks adorable and enlightening.
