"While Harry anticipates Halloween's treats, his sister, Emily, plans a secret costume that will be spookier than a ghost, prettier than a butterfly, and bigger than a tree. Suzanne Toren appears to enjoy this holiday story; her familiar voice is gentle and funny, and she sounds as if she's smiling while reading. Toren's presentation, which is meticulously clear and slow paced for new readers, allows listeners to relive the fun of Halloween preparations (from making window decorations to carving pumpkins) while taking time to appreciate unexpected kindness between siblings.
