Item description for The Berenstain Bears Trick or Treat (First Time Books(R)) by Stan Berenstain & Jan Berenstain...

Overview
The Berenstain Bear cubs have an adventure on Halloween night that proves Mother's adage, "Appearances can be deceiving"

Publishers Description
As Brother and Sister Bear don their costumes to go trick-or-treating by themselves for the first time, they plan to avoid Miz McGrizz's spooky home. But during their Halloween outing, the cubs discover that appearances can be deceiving.  
Stan and Jan Berenstain were both born in 1923 in Philadelphia.  They didn't know each other as children, but met later at school, at the Philadelphia College of Art.  They liked each other right away, and found out that the both enjoyed the same kinds of books, plays, music and art.  During World War II, Stan was a medical assistant in the Army, and Jan worked in an airplane factory.  When the war was over, they got married and began to work together as artists and writers, primarily drawing cartoons for popular magazines.  After having their two sons Leo and Michael, the Berenstains decided to write some funny children's books that their children and other children could read and enjoy.  Their first published children's book was called The Big Honey Hunt .  It was about a family of bears, who later became known as the "Berenstain Bears".  

Over 50 children's books later, Stan and Jan still plan all of their books together -- both write the stories, and both write the pictures.  They live outside of Philadelphia in the country.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Berenstain Bears Trick or Treat (First Time Books(R))?

Trick Or Treat  Oct 30, 2007
My 5 year old loved this book, and it's got a positive message too that he goes around saying sometimes. Anybook that can promote fun and safety at Halloween as well as a good message is a great book to share with your children.
 
Appearances Can Be Deceiving  Oct 9, 2007
Like the book The Berenstain Bears' New Neighbors, The Berenstain Bears Trick or Treat is a book tackling the subject of prejudice and not judging people by appearances.

However, like the other book, Papa's animosity and presumption is just too over the top--and, in my opinion, reinforces prejudice rather than challenges it.

For example, on the next to the last page, the kids are happily eating their take from Trick or Treating. Papa asks them where the beautiful candy apples came from. Brother and Sister inform him that they came from old Miz McGrizz.

"From that scary-looking old grouch puss that lives down Crooked Lane?", he asks. While the kids were surprised at Mizz McGrizz's kindness and friendliness and learned a lesson about rumors and assumption, the book ends on a rather sour note with Papa Bear's judgmentalism. In my opinion, it reinforces stereotype about the elderly and small-town rumors about "scary old people" who live in a "haunted house".

I feel that The Berenstain Bears and the Prize Pumpkin is a far better book to celebrate the Fall season (although that one is more about thankfulness/Thanksgiving).

This book has great illustrations because of the night scenes, to be sure, but I don't like how the ending focuses mostly on Papa Bear's insult against Mizz McGrizz (although it's great that the kids, at least, realized the error of their assumption based on neighborhood legend...)
 
Good Childrens Book  Dec 1, 1999
The Berenstain Bears "Trick or Treat" is a good book for the 1st time readers. It tells the story of Brother and Sister on Halloween night. They are scarred to go to Miz McGrizz's house because they think she is a witch. They end up going there trying to cuase trouble but are suprised when they find out that she is a very nice person.
 
It's Grinch Night in Bear Country...  Aug 24, 1998
Brother & Sister go trick-or-treating with Fred & Lizzy. They plan to skip Miz Mcgriss' house, because they think she's Gruntilda from Banjo-Kazooie. Hey wait! N64 wasn't around by then! In other words, Too-Tall is gonna teepee the house.

Why does Mcgriss always have a mad look on her face? She had it in this book, and she continued to have it in "Prize Pumpkin"!
