Praise

“Sprinkled with lurking monsters to spot, Rex’s mixed-media pictures have a timeless feel that renders this tale much more charming than chilling.” –-Publishers Weekly

“In this atmospheric ‘petrifying parody’ of We’re Going on a Bear Hunt, a dad and his four kids, dressed in Halloween finery and accompanied by their costumed pup, search for the elusive quarry. They become more frightened (particularly dad and pooch, even from the outset) as they proceed along the increasingly murky path—except for the youngest, unicorn-outfitted child, who squeals a delighted welcome to whatever creature unexpectedly materializes. As in the classic original, evocative sound effects (“Gurgle hiss, gurgle hiss, gurgle hiss!”) ring out as the quintet moves through each hazard. . .  Even readers who’ve never read or heard about the bear expedition will appreciate this clever, comical, fast-paced take. . . Humorously brooding and sweetly endearing.” —Kirkus Reviews

“Well suited for storytimes, this companion to Goodnight Goon and The Runaway Mummy lets readers look the season in its green or translucent face and laugh.” —The Horn Book
