School Library Journal - 12/01/2014 PreS-Gr 1—Katy Duck is pleased to be a dancing unicorn for Halloween. But then Alice Duck appears as a shimmering, glimmering mermaid, and Katy has misgivings about her own choice. Only when her friend compliments her does Katy regain her confidence, allowing the trick-or-treating to begin. Cole's delightful, boldly colored illustrations capture the characters' expressions, and Capucilli homes in on a common source of insecurity for children deciding upon a costume. Beginning readers will find reassurance in this easy-to-decipher story that has large print and just one or two easy sentences per page.—Gloria Koster, West School, New Canaan, CT - Copyright 2014 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
