| Order Information
is an attractive, professional looking book. The front and
back covers do a good job telling potential readers what
they will learn. It is nice that a portion of the proceeds
will be donated to Unicef. The first page 'visual index'
is a good idea. Also clever and useful are the last minute,
no sew costume ideas. The book
is well organized and well thought out. The photography
is of good quality and quite cute. The layout is attractive.
Her instructions and tips are clear and concise. She
does a quite thorough job telling readers exactly what they
need, shortcuts, and step-by-step instructions, all in a
friendly manner. I'm impressed by the amount of work it
took to produce this book, and with all the author's experience.
The author obviously has put
a great deal of effort and time into this project, and her
expertise and passion for the subject are evident throughout."

a costume wizard this Halloween. Do you need to scare up
a bewitching costume in one evening? Leila Peltosaari will
show you how in her new book, Illegally Easy Halloween Costumes
Halloween costumes can lift spirits. A Halloween costume
is so much more than a single night's getup. Peltosaari's
advice is to make each year's costume count. In
addition to the happy memories, it will allow parents and
children to spend some valuable, creative time together."

Easy for Halloween."
can't tell you how impressed I was with your book, Halloween
Costumes for Kids! The patterns are indeed simple and well
laid out. The color photographs
you have used throughout the book, are reason enough to
purchase it. I am genuinely impressed with
your talent and your book!"

inspiration with Ah Ha! tips that anyone can do. Sam
(age 5) and Kate (age 3) have been so excited about this
book 'reading' every page over and over and taking it to
bed with them! Kate has memorized the names
of each costume and has been able to ask and describe a
combination of costumes that she has imagined for herself!
This book is wonderful for inspiring creative imagination
and the costume tips and patterns are easy and versatile
enough for you to whip up an original costume with very
simple inexpensive ingredients."
site review from Karen, Mississauga, ON)
Illegally Easy Halloween Costumes for Kids is the best I
have seen on this topic. The full color photographs of the
costumes, complete with makeup, are spectacular. The directions
are thorough and easy to follow."
