A perfect read-aloud for Halloween or any other day you're in the mood for a fright - or a laugh! From the best-selling creators of 'The Dragons Are Singing Tonight" and "Monday's Troll".
Prelutsky and Sis are at it again, concocting another spine-tingling brew of humorous verse and witty illustrations toasting gruesome ghouls. Celebrating gremlins, griffins, and basilisks as well as more garden-variety monsters, Prelutsky's poems are filled with nimble word play and shameless puns... Whether reciting the laments of an aging werewolf or observing a vampire's daily grooming habits... his rhymes never fail to amuse. Sis' ethereal oil and gouache illustrations, with their elegantly designed borders and finely cross-hatched detail, play up the inherent humour while bring a touch of sophistication to the silliness... This is another winner from a pair of seasoned collaborators, and fans can only hope they keep them coming -- Publishers Weekly.
