  • These clever couplets featuring spooky scenes and creatures of the night are great for reading aloud anytime but will prove especially popular during the Halloween season. Well-known favorites like Dracula and Frankenstein’s monster come alive in Kutner’s lively rhyming text and Manders’ gruesome watercolor-and-gouache illustrations. There is plenty of blood and gore, but the language of the rhymes is fairly simple…A quality book for younger children wanting to get in the holiday spirit.
