Banned Book Review: Halloween ABC

December 5, 2005

34. Halloween ABC by Eve Merriam

Reason: too violent for young children

Halloween ABC is not what it sounds like.  It is not a cute and friendly little book about cute little critters illustrating the ABCs through Halloween themes.  It is a dark and gothic book of poetry that will tickle the fancy of any horror fan.  Some of the themes are darker than others (one references a murder and one talks about demons summoning Satan), but mostly they’re about on par with Scary Stories.  The illustrations are what really make this book a worthwhile read.  They’re beautifully done and definately creepy.  Recommended for 4-8, but you might want to read it ahead of time to see if your child is ready for something this scary.
