Susan Wojciechowski and Susan Meddaugh weave a laugh-out-loud tale about one boy's ghosts from Halloweens past.
Ever since Ben was a baby, his parents have concocted wild costumes for him on Halloween. He has been a magician's rabbit (complete with a giant top hat), a bunch of grapes, even a slice of Swiss cheese! Ben has hated every one of these costumes. But now that Ben is seven, he decides to take matters into his own hands and construct a costume that makes this the best Halloween of all! Susan Wojciechowski, award-winning author of THE CHRISTMAS MIRACLE OF JONATHAN TOOMEY, and Susan Meddaugh, creator of MARTHA SPEAKS and MARTHA CALLING, have conjured up a very special Halloween treat!
About the Author
Susan Wojciechowski says the idea for THE BEST HALLOWEEN OF ALL came after she acted as a judge for a Halloween costume party. "One little girl had a very elaborate costume," she remembers. "But it didn't win, and her mother wasn't pleased. I realized later that like that mother I was always constructing 'creative' costumes for my two boys without consulting them. From then on, I left it to them."
Susan Meddaugh, a New England Book Award Winner, adores Halloween and calls it "THE major Holiday" in her household, in part, she says "because it's the only time in the year when you get to be someone else."
