The Halloween Kid keeps everything safe for trick or treaters. When he's suddenly needed again to handle some goblins, he's out of practice and ends up getting help from the local kids. Love the art style of the book and and the western feel. It's very cute.

Very nicely illustrated book with a cutout/silhouette vibe using a limited black/off-white and orange palette. The language lends towards talking with a real twangy accent which the kids really enjoyed.

In a unique mix of wild west action and Halloween treats, this book tells the tall tale of the Halloween Kid. The Halloween Kid keeps Halloween safe for all children going trick-or-treating. Riding his trusty steed, he is able to truss up toilet paper mummies, wrestle vampires, tickle ghosts into submission. He was so good at it that Halloween was quiet for some time. But then the Goodie Goblins came to town and folks started talking about canceling Halloween entirely. The Halloween Kid hadn’t had to fight off baddies for a long time, so he was rusty. Unfortunately, that made him the target of an ambush. Now who can save The Halloween Kid?
Montijo has written a book in a slow drawl that is filled with plenty of action and lots of Halloween creatures. While the Halloween Kid is the powerful hero of the story, so are the children in the book. This is a book all about kid power and courage. The illustrations are done in a limited autumnal palette of oranges, yellows and black. They have a real cartoon appeal to them. Interestingly, they have been marked up a little as if printed on newsprint that has transferred to other pages. It makes for a book that feels timeless and well loved.
A Halloween story perfect for preschool audiences who would like a few monsters but almost no scares. Appropriate for ages 4-6.

A fun read, with language tailored to fit a cowboy/western theme... Due to the orange hues/tones in all of the illustrations, this would probably be a difficult book at a storytime, but a fun book for smaller groups or one-on-one...
