Little children love to play peek-a-boo, and several creative children’s book authors and illustrators have created some delightful bookish peek-a-book titles that allow children to play the game in a new way.

In this title, author and illustrator Nina Laden combines a very minimal text with colorful illustrations, and die cut windows, to give children a Halloween themed peek-a-boo experience. On every other spread they will find a new window to look through and they can guess what lies on the coming spread before they turn the page. They are given clues to help them figure out what is coming up, and at the end of the book they will find a clever surprise that wraps up the narrative perfectly.
