Events take a surprising and unexpected turn when students prank an aged woman's home in the children's book, A Halloween Night Caper by Robin Hollo. Carl, Peter, Kevin, Marcy, and Robert are good friends. Halloween is just around the corner, and this year they want to do something extra outside of their usual Halloween trick or treating. When Peter's dog goes missing, they suspect that the strange old lady, Ms. Cruthers, who lives alone on a faraway hill took him, and decide to play a prank on her. The five students plot and design the perfect plan, giving each a specific job to perform. However, they haven’t considered how scary and isolated Ms. Cruther's property is. Resolving to have a thrilling holiday despite their fear, they continue with their plans, even when Peter disappears into the dark and creepy woods. When they reach Ms. Cruther's house, someone starts grabbing them from the shadows of the night. What will happen to them? Where is Peter?

A Halloween Night Caper by Robin Hollo is an entertaining middle-grade book. With incredible illustrations and a thought-provoking plot, the story captures the essence of children's innate qualities and dispositions. More importantly, it contains a valuable message about consideration for others and judging people who seem different. It was gratifying to witness the protagonists' parents taking an active part in teaching them how to respect others, helping them develop emotionally and mature into responsible citizens. With the perceived danger lurking just out of sight, this entertaining and suspenseful story will enthrall boys and girls from the ages of eight to twelve years.


This book is adorable. I love the content and the creativity. I definitely would recommend this book. It is exciting and a great read.
