Marjorie Dennis Murray is the author of several acclaimed books for children. She grew up in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, where at the age of three she was placed in an orphanage and remained there until she was 12. Eventually she attended the University of Pittsburgh, where she graduated with two degrees and high honors.
After working at several unfulfilling jobs, she discovered that she was an authentic "kid at heart", and that her true calling was to write books for children. She now works (very happily) as an assistant teacher in a preschool. She is very good at tying shoes, mixing paints, and helping children feel comfortable at school.
Marjorie Dennis Murray is the author of the very well-reviewed and popular picture book, Halloween Night; as well as Hippo Goes Bananas!, a Children's Choice Book of the Year; Don't Wake Up the Bear!, an International Reading Assoc. Choice; and one of Disney Online's Best Books of 2002, Little Wolf and the Moon.From School Library Journal:
Kindergarten-Grade 3—"'Twas Halloween night, and all through the house/Every creature was stirring, including the mouse." With text echoing the classic Christmas poem, the opening spread features a brightly lit mansion and pulls even the most reluctant readers into this holiday story. Out come bats, spiders, witches, ogres, ghosts, and banshees, all excitedly preparing a spectacular buffet for young trick-or-treaters. Their work backfires, however, when the children peek into the spooky house: "But what they saw on that shadowy night/Made each little trickster shiver with fright!" Murray's smooth rhyming text combines well with Dorman's vibrant and extraordinarily detailed digital art, with surprises on every page. This is an energetic romp with a satisfying conclusion that will be a fun read-aloud for wide-eyed children anxiously awaiting the holiday.—Lee Bock, Glenbrook Elementary School, Pulaski, WI
