So the first time you hear the concept of Halloween when you're a kid, your brain can't even understand it. "What is this? What did you say? Someone's giving out candy? Who's giving out candy? EVERYONE WE KNOW is giving out candy? I gotta be a part of this!"

In his first picture book, comedian and bestselling author Jerry Seinfeld captures on the page his hilarious views on Halloween, from Superman costumes that look like pajamas to the agony of getting bad trick-or-treat candy. Seinfeld's tale resonates with vivid experiences of a night every kid loves.

Both kids and adults will eat up Jerry's distinct and unwritten rules of Halloween. Hamilton King award-winning illustrator, James Bennett's outlandish illustrations perfectly depict these unique observations, reminding us why Jerry Seinfeld is still the funniest man alive.

About the author (2008)

Stand-up comedian, comic television actor, advertising pitchman, and author, Jerry Seinfeld makes a seamless transition from one role to the next. He earned the 1992 and 1993 American Comedy Award for Best Actor in a comedy series and an Emmy award for outstanding comedy series for the hit television comedy that bears his name. The show completed its prime-time run with a media blitz in 1998, but appears regularly in syndication. Based very closely on Seinfeld's real-life circumstances and experiences, Seinfeld's show is, according to the actor himself, "about nothing." In some respects, however, it is autobiographical: what happens to a comedian living in New York City as he passes time with friends between shows. He is single, thin and neat, and loves baseball, fast cars, Superman, and cereal. Seinfeld's books, Jerry Seinfeld: Stand-Up Confidential (1987) and Sein Language (1993), follow the same themes. Seinfeld was born in Brooklyn, New York on April 29, 1955. He has a degree in theater communications from Queens (N.Y.) College. Seinfeld is single and still calls New York home.

James Bennett is a web developer for the World Company of Lawrence, Kansas, and is a major contributor to the Django project. His current role within the Django community is as the software project's release manager.
