    It's been awhile since I enjoyed the rest of the books in this series, so I can't do a direct comparison of quality. But this reads just fine as a stand-alone, I believe. And so much fun... especially if read aloud, of course. I do recall that some of the others were for older children, with political & economic themes. This, otoh, is fun for pre-school, maybe even toddlers.(I really need to be reminded of child development progression and milestones as I'm just not sure how sophisticated a three yo is... does she know what dressing up in a costume is?)

    This is a fun story to read. I found it to be very cute!We have our lovable farm animals and Farmer Brown returning to us in a fun Halloween tale. Farmer Brown is afraid of Halloween. He does not like it. So he puts out a bowl of candy and a Do Not Disturb sign and turns in for the night. Then he hears creepy, spooky noises coming from outside. Meanwhile, the barn yard animals are having a Halloween Party in the barn. Dressed up in costumes, they are arriving (making noises) to the party. The pictures are wonderful. I love the watercolors. And I think that they do an awesome job showing the story.I think that this story is best for younger children, probably Pre-K through 3rd grade. But most elementary students would probably find something to enjoy. My daughters found the book to be cute and funny. They laughed a lot (especially at the ending.) I like that this is a fun Halloween story that is not too scary for younger kids.

    Farmer Brown does not like Halloween. Jack o'lanterns are creepy, witches are frightening, and the crunch, crunch, crunching of their feet on the lawn, the creak, creak, creaking of the barn door, and the tap, tap, tapping on the window make the holiday even more scary. The animals like it, though, and cook up a Halloween party in the barn.This benign offering will satisfy young ones, but it lacks the humor of the original, Click, Clack, Moo.

    Farmer Brown, who doesn't like Halloween, is summoned to the barn to investigate strange noises and finds a big surprise in store waiting for him.

    Cute book, but I was disappointed with it. It's nowhere as clever as other books in the series. My pre-schooler enjoyed it, but she's not asked to read it again (unlike other books in the series).

    Seems like a forgettable cash-in in comparison with the delightfully witty "Click, Clack Moo."

    It’s Halloween and Farmer Brown doesn’t like it. He puts out a bowl of candy on the porch, locks up the house and puts out a “Do Not Disturb” sign, then he goes to bed. Little does he know that while the animals in his barn love Halloween and are having a party, a dark, spooky creature is heading towards Farmer Brown’s house. When Farmer Brown hears a tap, tap, tapping on the front door, he opens it and sees the bowl of candy is gone. But there’s a note on the door, and there’s lots of noise coming from the barn. What could his barnyard animals be up to on Halloween night? A big surprise for Farmer Brown? This is a fun Halloween book, especially for kids who might be a little nervous about all the costumes, and decorations associated with it. The text is lighthearted, with repetitious sound words adding to the spookiness throughout the story. Lewin’s watercolor illustrations, in the colors of Halloween, along with her goofy costumed animals add to the fun of Farmer Brown’s big surprise at the end.

    The series started with Click, Clack, Moo, and has continued with several sequels. Each one is well done in both text and illustrations. Doreen and Betsy compliment each other. This sequel centers around Halloween and includes the usual characters--the farm animals and the farmer and of course the ring leader, duck. The farmer is not a fan of Halloween, is afraid of it and plans isolate himself under the covers in his bed after leaving a bowl of candy on the porch with a note "DO NOT DISTURB." When he hears strange noises he goes to the door and discovers that the farm animals are having a Halloween party in the barn. He goes to investigate and....

    Not quite the complete story of the original Click, Clack, Moo but still a serviceable, fun, and richly illustrated Halloween themed follow up. Farmer Brown does not enjoy Halloween but that will not stop the barn dwelling animals from celebrating. Again, a work my children enjoyed and while not the classic of the original, this is a fun enough holiday tie in that my kids recall and ask for throughout the year.

    These farmer and his animals books are all cute to read but they all end "odd" and this one seemed to have no ending at all... just leaves things hanging. Farmer is afraid of Halloween but the animals are having a Halloween party in the barn. The farmer puts his pjs on and heads to bed. But he hears scary noises on the porch and in the leaves,... and a shadow in the yard!

    The story follows old farmer Brown who is afraid of halloween — a very nice little piece of literary endearment for all ages. Yes, for here is a little book which is a delight! The characters are captivating, the drawings are full of personality and uniqueness, the plot is interesting and intriguing, the subdue color palette is a refreshing novelty.

    This is a really cute story about a farmer who is afraid of Halloween but the animals in the barn are thrilled and have a big party. There is not a lot of text and it isn't too scary so it would be okay for a younger group!

    Genre: FictionThis book is great for Kindergarten. One unique feature of this text is it has the same characters as other click, clack, moo stories so the children can build a relationship with the characters!

    Farmer Brown doesn't like Halloween with its spooky sights and sounds, but the farm animals do. They plan a Halloween party in the barn that not even Farmer Brown can resist.

    2 stars is liberal for this particular Click, Clack book. I prefer others in this character series. This one didn't quite have the flow or charm that I believe the some of the others do.

    This is goofy and funny and would be great in the future for a halloween storytime.

    Who doesn't like Halloween? Well apparently Farmer Brown doesn't. He is scared silly of that spooky night. "Witches give him nightmares. Pirates give him shivers." His remedy for Halloweenitis? He puts on his footed pajamas, draws the shades down low, locks the door securely and goes to bed. But he is not all that disengaged entirely from the rituals because before he settles down to sleep he puts a big bowl of candy on his front porch but then posts a "Do Not Disturb" sign on his front door. Farmer Brown begins to hear creaks, crunches and all sorts of crazy sounds outside his house. He can't stand not knowing what is making those noises so he gets up to take a peek out of his window to see what is happening. He discovers that the whole bowl of candy he placed there is gone and a poster has been nailed to his door that reads: "Halloween Party in the barn." He can make out a huge shadowy image with a cape and an orange beak coming closer shouting, "Quack, quack, quackle." Alarmed he runs and dives into his bed pulling the covers over his head.His barnyard friends however have a very different idea about how the night should be orchestrated. A cow dresses up as a skeleton, the sheep sport witches's hats, the cat has on batwings and the chickens look mighty ghostly. They are out to party Halloween night away in the barn and everyone is invited, especially Farmer Brown. He cannot stand it any longer and he gets up to go and see what all the Halloween fuss is about. When he gets to the party he finds there are a lot of surprises in store for him and he, Farmer Brown himself, is the centre of attention.This book is not scary at all, but very funny. The illustrations with their saturated watercolours are vibrant, friendly and brilliant. Lewin's moonlit colour pallet add just the right touch to create a mood of spookiness to the night. Cronin uses onomatopoeia and repetition to generate an eerie feeling. It is the perfect read aloud for this wonderful Halloween season.

    I LOVE most of the Click Clack series by Doreen Cronin and Betsy Lewin so I may have had overly high expectations as I started this book. The humor is the strong point for me in this series. I found it a bit less than usual in Click Clack Boo A Tricky Treat.This is a strong choice, however, for not very scary story times for ages 4 to 7. Listeners and readers will enjoy seeing many familiar characters from this series, including duck, sheep, pig and cows. I especially enjoyed the illustrations of the covers, Party begins, mice in costumes, dark creature, Farmer Brown running and the final picture.The watercolor illustrations are the highlight for me.The text has opportunities for somewhat spooky sounds for reading aloud. There is humor in the pictures and the twist at the end is enjoyable, but it just wasn't as funny to me as previous series entries. But younger listeners and readers may greatly enjoy it. 3.5 stars. Recommended for school and public library collections.For ages 4 to 8, humor, Halloween, farm, picture books, read-aloud, and fans of Doreen Cronin and Betsy Lewin.

    You will only know if you like something by trying it.Farmer Brown puts on his feetie pajamas and tucks under the covers on Halloween night. You see he doesn't like Halloween and wants nothing to do with it but...He leaves a bowl of candy on the front porch before he goes to bed.Now Farmer Brown's animals love Halloween and have even planned a Halloween costume party in the barn. They leave a note for Farmer Brown on his porch where the candy used to be.In the house Farmer Brown hears some scary noises and sees dark shadows so he heads out to check things out. He discovers the candy is no longer there and there is a note about a Halloween party in the barn. So he slowly and carefully makes his way to the barn and what does he find? There are cats dressed as bats, cows dressed as skeletons and everybody is having a lot of fun.So what does Farmer Brown do? He stays and is the life of the party!This book is a lot of fun. My group of kids were entertained by the animals wearing costumes and wanted to find out what Farmer Brown's reaction to the party would be. We followed up with a craft of animals dressed-up and talked about trying new things.

    Before my daughter was born, my mother-in-law saw a book called "Click, Clack, Moo - Cows that Type". She thought it was so cute so she bought it for us in board book format. My daughter actually enjoyed that book and while we were at the library last week, I ran across this one! I didn't know there were others! Since Halloween is just around the corner, I feel like it's acceptable to read Halloween books. =)My daughter thoroughly enjoyed this book. The colors were vibrant and there was a lot to look at on each page. She really likes the sound effects too "Creak, creak, creaking", etc. She sat still for it and loved pointing at the books and smiled the whole time. As she gets older also, there is a lot in the pictures that we could discuss. Right now I just point them out and talk about it, but there's plenty in here where I could ask her questions to get her thinking also, which I really like. I'm going to have to keep an eye out for these books at the big book sale in Feb. I'd like to add a few more from this "series" to our bookshelf.
