Soon it will be Halloween, a celebration that started from ancient beliefs and customs and that today provides all kinds of spooky fun. It is...glowing jack-o'-lanterns, black cats, funny costumes, trick-or-treating, special games, yummy candied apples, scary stories, and the perfect time for saying BOO!
Gail Gibbons earned a B.F.A. at the University of Illinois and began her career as a commercial artist. She was inspired to become an illustrator of children's books by a college professor. Her first book for children., WILLY AND HIS WHEEL WAGON, was published in 1975. Many of her books, such as CLOCKS (1979) and LOCKS AND KEYS (1980) are concept books that explain the way things work.
