Open up and say “ahhhhh-dorable!”
The latest picture book in Tad Hills’s Duck & Quack series, “Honk! Quack! Boo!” (Schwartz & Wade), tackles the jitters that kids ages 3–7 can develop around Halloween, especially when they are surrounded by masked pals, no matter how small. In their latest tale, Duck and Quack are excited about going trick-or-treating in their ghost and superhero costumes, but after they are warned by Thistle — “Beware the swamp monster!” — they are understandably apprehensive. The Brooklyn author-illustrator’s suspenseful book is so entertaining that you may find yourself buying copies for all the kids you know.
