BOARD BOOK REVIEWS: PJ Masks Save Halloween!/Where's the Witch?


ABOUT THE BOOK

Catboy, Owlette, and Gekko celebrate Halloween in this action-packed board book based on PJ Masks, the hit preschool series airing on Disney Junior!

The PJ Masks have to protect all the kids from Luna Girl, Night Ninja, and the Wolfy Kids who team up to steal everyone’s treat bags. It’s up to the PJ Masks to save the day—and Halloween!


REVIEW

To put it simply, if you have children who love the show, they will probably love this book.  Admittedly, the story feels truncated which is natural when creating a short board book from a 20-minute TV show.  But most children who hear or read this will have probably already seen the episode it is based on so its not a huge issue.  There is more text in this sort of book than in most stand alone board books and because of that it won't work well for infants.  But it's a fun story with a fun puffy cover for those who love the show.



ABOUT THE BOOK

Five stylishly illustrated spreads show a series of gently spooky creatures hiding behind bright felt flaps in this Halloween offering. A mirror on the final spread makes for a satisfying ending to the book's search-and-find inquiries. A perfect book to share with very little ones.

REVIEW

This adorable book works well for infants and toddlers who love to have flaps to turn over and giggle when something appears.  The book has a repetitive, straight-forward format with each spread having one creature asking where another creature is such as the black cat looking for the skeleton.  The skeleton is of course under the felt house flap on the corresponding page.  The last page asks where the listener/reader is and has a mirror under the ghost flap.  A quick, fun read for young listeners who need interaction and and brevity to stimulate their interest.
