Black Cats At Halloween by Laughing ElephantPublished: September 1st 2014
This addition to our popular series of shaped books for children is a happy story about the activities of one of Halloween s most durable icons the black cat. It shows how fully they enter into the spirit of the holiday. We see black cats with their fellow Halloween icons jack-o-lanterns, witches of all varieties, and owls. They join children in their trick or treat rounds, and do their best to be scary. Some wear costumes, and in the spirit of the holiday, frolic and dance. Black kittens join the celebration with their feline elders. We have illustrated this charming book with a variety of vintage Halloween images, including rare vintage postcards.”
