Come along and get tickets to the Heebie-Jeebie Jamboree! In this cute book by Mary Ann Fraser, a young girl named Daphne and her brother Sam, get tickets to a Halloween carnival called the Heebie-Jeebie Jamboree. They are whisked off into a carnival consisting of warlock rodeos, witch’s brew-off, a Rolling Bones concert, and a tricky hall of mirrors. Getting caught up with all the various activities in the carnival, Daphne seems to lose Sam in a crowd. So she sets off in the Heebie-Jeebie Jamboree in search of Sam, and finds other tricks and treats along the way.
The illustrations, which are also done by Mary Ann Fraser, are bright, colorful, and very detailed. School Library Journal says “The full-bleed illustrations in vibrant colors feature Halloween creatures of all sorts (but none frightening), and the pages are packed with action and energy. Children will love poring over the many details.”
