The Woozler’s Halloween: Meeda and Me, written and illustrated by Rhonda Paglia, is a delightful children’s story full of richly detailed, colorful characters and artworks. The book has a sweet and appealing writing style that graces each page. The Woozler’s Halloween tells the tale of a friendless woozler, who goes by the name of Frankincense and who is not fond of people. Frankincense finds himself on one of his favorite holidays, Halloween, in search of a personal item that’s gone missing, and the story details how he manages in getting it back.
I found Rhonda Paglia’s The Woozler’s Halloween to have a delightful story line with characters that you want to reach out and touch, because they seem so vivid and accessible. The colors bring with them a good deal of bright and happy energy, something that I find a lot of children's books to be lacking. In this book, specifically, I was reminded of my younger days as a child and of the stories that were told to me by a best friend’s grandmother when I would come down to visit with them both.
If you have been actively searching for an entertaining book to read to your children, and also one that helps to instill a lesson learned, this is certainly a book that I would recommend to children of all ages, as well as adults who might have a childlike spirit about them. And what’s even better is that The Woozler’s Halloween is part of a series, so the charming world and entertainment that is Frankincense, the woozler, continues on.
