    One thought on “Heebie-Jeebie Jamboree”

    1. 3.5 STARSCute idea but fizzled out a bit in the end. A little girl and her brother receive tickets (out of thin air!) to the Heebie-Jeebie Jamboree. It's lots of fun, of course, full of ghoulish guests and creepy twists on classic carnival attractions (like a carousel made of skeleton horses). I think the little boy wandering off and getting lost interrupted the flow of the story and there was not enough resolution to it (or consequences for his behavior) for it to be a real conflict. Kids who e [...]

    2. It's Halloween, and Daphne and her little brother Sam receive invitations to a ghostly gathering. They quickly become separated with Sam wandering among the ghouls, and Daphne trying to find him. While the storyline is fairly simple with some interesting word play--"Eyes cream!" (unpaginated), Daphne being addressed as "little ghoul" (unpaginated), and a fortune teller who predicts that Sam is "in for a bumpy ride" (unpaginated) before he climbs aboard a spook-filled roller coaster--there are al [...]

    3. This is a cute story with amazingly colorful pictures that tell the story all by themselves. But the written story is also a delight! A brother and sister pull tickets to the Heebie-Jeebie Jamboree out of thin air and attend that evening, which is Halloween night. They enjoy many spooky sights then they get separated. The older sister looks for her brother as he wanders about the jamboree enjoying a pumpkin pie eating contest and a roller coaster ride. Finally, the sister finds the missing broth [...]

    4. In this cute book by Mary Ann Fraser, a young girl named Daphne and her brother Sam, get tickets to a Halloween carnival called the Heebie-Jeebie Jamboree. They are whisked off into a carnival consisting of warlock rodeos, witch’s brew-off, a Rolling Bones concert, and a tricky hall of mirrors. Getting caught up with all the various activities in the carnival, Daphne seems to lose Sam in a crowd. So she sets off in the Heebie-Jeebie Jamboree in search of Sam, and finds other tricks and treats [...]

    5. Daphne and little brother Sam on Halloween night have two tickets to the Heebie-Jeebie Jamboree float into their hands and the are off to a graveyard where the Jamboree whic looks like a carnival is in progress. Of course the illustrations of the carnival are all Halloween themed. Good Halloween read, but most children will not get some of the humor, like the Skeleton Clown selling "Eyes Cream".Loved that the end papers were nicely illustrated.

    6. My daughter and I both enjoyed this storyI might have enjoyed it more then her! Its a fun little story about a brother and sister who get tickets to go to a amusement park or carnival kind of thing for ghosts, witches and other creepy creatures. It kind of reminded me of the Cirque Du Freak series/movie where the show came at midnight, also Something Wicked this Way comes. It was a pretty cute story. Fun play on words, easy to read and great artwork!

    7. A story about Daphne and Sam and how they mysteriously come across tickets to the Heebie-Jeebie Jamboree. While it started out cute the two get separated and Daphne spends most of her time looking for Sam. While she explores the Jamboree to find him I wished the book was more about them enjoying the party together instead of it being a search for her brother.Overall it is cute and would be good for kids that enjoy fun light Halloween stories.

    8. This was a cute, lighthearted read. Two kids pull tickets to the Heebie-Jeebie Jamboree out of the air on Halloween night. The Jamboree is basically an amusement park for ghosts and goblins. The illustrations are fun and will keep both kids and adults amused (like the concert for the "Rolling Bones"). My favorite are the headstones for Doug McGrave and Bea Reitbach. :)

    9. I thought this was a cute book with nice art work. I liked some of the play on words. The concessions sell: Eyes cream! Candy corn dogs! and Barbecue bat wings! Although, it did not really hold Sawyers attention.

    10. This story is about a brother and sister who are invited to a spooky amusement park on Halloween. Cute references to spooky lingo. The brother wanders off and gets lost but the siblings are reunited in the end.

    11. A girl and her little brother find two tickets to the Heebie-Jeebie Jamboree, a carnival for real ghouls and ghosts. The pair have a great time in the contests and on the rides. This story has bright colorful artwork, it isn't spooky at all, a fun choice to read at Halloween.

    12. A Halloween adventure that's just spooky enough to introduce preschoolers to all the classic characters like witches, goblins, mummies, and more. But, it's not too scary!

    13. The story is weak, but the illustrations are fun. My three year old girls are obsessed with this book, and relish the opportunity to say "monocle" whenever they see a man wearing it in the pictures.

    14. This is a fun book, especially with some spelling and jokes for adults as well, but it is a fun book about 2 kids that get a ticket to a fun jamboree with Halloween characters.

    15. One day two young siblings find a magical tickets blowing in the breeze to the Heebie-Jeebie Jamboree. Hold on to each other kids! Getting separated can prove to be a bit scary.

    16. A pleasant enough, but not remarkable book about two siblings who visit a haunted carnival. Low scare value and cute illustrations.
