Winner Blurb: 

"A rhyming text describes spooky monsters of many types gathering for a ball in Los Gatos Black on Halloween.  However, the rollicking fun is interrupted by the scariest of creatures of all in a surprise ending that will delight readers of all ages.  Morales' eerily glowing illustrations capture the blend of traditional Halloween and Día de los Muertos symbols, matching the humorous interplay of Spanish and English in the text.  Historical allusions and whimsical figures delight the eye in the this timeless story." said Award Committee Chair Jean Hatfield.
