Format: Hardback



Goodreads Synopsis: 
A fun and funny Halloween romp for children and parents alike!

It's Halloween night, and creatures and critters from near and far are starting to gather outside the front door. And now here comes a whole army of monsters, on broomsticks, buses, and bikes, all clamoring in the darkness. What is it they want? Are they coming for you?

This humorous, creative story is the perfect Halloween adventure for children and parents to share.
As you probably know, if you read my reviews, I do not have kids - but I LOVE children's books and this one was great. I love Halloween and so this book just seemed like a wonderful read for me - I read it aloud to myself (and my doggie) with gusto - as I expect any parent would - and the rhyming scheme was flawless. The book is beautifully illustrated by Marina Le Ray and the colors are bold and inviting and I expect young readers and listeners will love exploring them, they have a lot to offer. 

The book has a wonderful message about being yourself and not being afraid that I think will be great for parents as well, especially as Halloween draws nearer and costumes and decorations can give kids a fright. 

Wonderful parent-child read for Halloween, or really any time of year.
