Man-Kong, Mary and Emily Ocasio Barbie: A Boo-tiful Halloween! Illustrated by Kellee Riley Random House, 2013. $4.99 PICTURE BOOK Content: G.
Barbie and her three sisters are celebrating Halloween by decorating the house, eating tasty treats and dressing in their costumes. They go outside to join the neighborhood parade and trick or treat. When they get to their friend’s house they are scared because a ghost comes running at them, but it’s just their friend’s dog. They have a great holiday together.
This is a typical Barbie book with lots of dressing up and hanging out with friends. There is not really a story line, just a basic description of Halloween. Some of the pictures can glow in the dark after you put them up to the lamp for 30 seconds. If your kids like Barbie, they will not be disappointed.
