PreS-Gr 1—A gentle, Halloween-themed story about overcoming shyness and embracing one's talents. Owl, Cat, Bat, and Mouse attend the one-room moonlight school, headed by Miss Moon, a friendly witch. Experiencing typical first-day jitters, Mouse hides from his fellow classmates and teacher at the beginning of the story. But his good manners overrule his shy nature, forcing him to reveal his hiding spot when called upon by his teacher. His classmates are so impressed with his hiding skills that an impromptu game of hide-and-seek breaks out. Cat, Bat, and Owl are all easy to find, but Mouse again eludes his seekers. When his final hiding spot is revealed (in the teacher's hat) more praise is given and Mouse decides that not only does he like school but he will never hide from his friends again—unless playing hide-and-seek of course! Puttock's sweet story of encouragement pairs well with Pye's delightful illustrations. VERDICT A first purchase, especially for family-friendly Halloween storytimes.—Jasmine L.
