Book Review: The Thirteen Hours of Halloween by D. C. Regan

4.5/5 stars. Written in the tradition of The Twelve Days of Christmas, author Dian Curtis Regan presents the Halloween classic, The Thirteen Hours of Halloween.

A little girl recounts a tale of all the Halloween gifts she receives including pumpkins, bats, cats, ghosts, zombies, and more. By the time the 13th hour of Halloween arrives, she has accumulated quite a collection of whimsical beasts and ghouls. She decides to give them all away except for one. Which gift will she keep? Regan keeps us guessing until the very last page.

Lieve Baeten's lively colored pencil and watercolor drawings are fantastically executed. A classic Halloween treat for children ages 4 - 8.
