Emlyn Chand Review – Tommy Goes Trick-Or-Treating!

Emlyn Chand Review - Tommy goes Trick-or-Treating


Emlyn Chand delivers again! 

Tommy is a mischievous little woodpecker who loves to fly to the edge of the forest and watch the people in the nearby suburb. One evening, something strange and exciting happens—people emerge from their houses wearing costumes and carrying colorful buckets with smiling faces on them. What’s even crazier is that they shout a special codeword while standing outside of each house, and are given delicious-looking candy.

Tommy simply must join in the fun. He and his friend, Michael the raccoon, fashion their own costumes and head off to join in the festivities. Thanks to Tommy’s knock-knocking beak and Michael’s quick paws, the duo is able to heist many a candy bar from the unsuspecting homeowners and children.

But are they missing out on the true spirit of Halloween?



Emlyn Chand emerged from the womb with a fountain pen clutched in her left hand (true story). When she’s not writing, she runs a large book club in Ann Arbor and is the president of author PR firm Novel Publicity. Best known for her Young Adult novels, she is also developing a small, but devoted, following to her children’s book series and is beginning to dapple in other genres as well. Emlyn enjoys connecting with readers and is available via almost every social media site in existence. Visit EmlynChand.com for more info. Don’t forget to say “hi” to her sun conure Ducky!



From a parents point of view I love Bird Brain Books by Emlyn Chand because they always have a great lesson I hope my child and grandchildren will absorb.  As parents and grandparents we repeat the same lessons but I’ve found that often our children will absorb those lessons on their own through the stories we read to them.  This book helps to teach children a lessons about greed and sharing.

From a child’s point of view our son and grandchildren love the illustrations and this was no exception.  They really enjoyed the story and I love watching our ten year old talk to the little ones as if he’s an expert on these lessons already.  Allowing him to read the story not only enforces the lesson with him but allows him to be a role model for his niece and nephew.

I highly recommend that you consider adding this entire series to your child or grandchild’s library.
