About the Author

Tia Perkin is a three-time Emmy-Nominated Graphic Artist turned stay-at-home mom and freelancer. Her first children's book, "Two!", was written for her now seven-year-old twin sons - partially as a gift and partially as a coping mechanism for a double-helping of toddler hijinx! She is continuing on the series and has most recently released "Hall-O-Ween!".

Author Interview

Life Is What It's Called - What was your inspiration for this book?
Tia Perkin - A lifetime of love for Halloween and my twin 7-year-old boys. This book in particular is just a nod to that magical anticipation leading up to Halloween that I always felt as a kid, and still do now. 

Life Is What It's Called - What do you hope kids will gain from reading this? 
Tia Perkin - I hope this book gets readers excited for the Halloween season! 

Life Is What It's Called - How is your Halloween book different than others on the market? 
Tia Perkin - This book uses a lot of onomatopoeia to really take the reader through all of the sights, sounds and smells of Halloween. It's not so much of a traditional plot line with a beginning, middle and end as it is a day-in-the-life of a little boy as he gets ready for Halloween. It's about reinforcing traditions and getting kids excited for what's coming up.

Life Is What It's Called - What do you plan to work on next? 
Tia Perkin - I would like to make a Christmas book as part of this series, and also go back and create “One!” (I've published “Two!” and “Three!” already).  

Life Is What It's Called - What inspired you to be an author?
Tia Perkin - I wrote “Hall-O-Ween!” and my other books as a keepsake for my kiddos, sort of chronicling their early childhood.  I've always liked to write, but my truest passion is illustrating. Writing these books gave me something to illustrate. 

Life Is What It's Called - What do you think kids will like best about this book? 
Tia Perkin - I think they will love the colors in the illustrations. Halloween is full of so much great imagery! Also, I think they will like the  onomatopoeia and rhyme – it's really catchy! 

Hall-O-Ween was an instant hit with my kids (ages 1, 3, 5). We've read it several times over.  I discovered that my kids were sneaking it in their beds to look at instead of sleeping. My kids were also reading it all over the house.  I love the bright colors used in the book. Some Halloween picture books are too scary for young kids, but this one was fun and cute. I loved the onomatopoeia used throughout the story, the rhymes, and how the book encompasses the feeling of Halloween. The word count was also appropriate for young children.  This is a great book to add to your Halloween picture book collection!
