From the creators of DINOSAURUMPUS! comes their new Halloween picture book about counting.
Hush! Oooh, what’s that sound? The midnight spooks are coming round.”
Tony Mitton and Guy Parker-Rees team up again to create another
fun-filled book. Halloween is the setting as kids rhyme their way
through the night and to a spook-filled birthday party. Emphasized
sounds such as “CLICKETY CLACK” and “HISSSSS!” will allow younger
children to enjoy the fun of reading. Parker-Rees’s illustrations, in
the tradition of DINOSAURUMPUS! and K IS FOR KISSING A COOL KANGAROO,
are sure to delight.
This book was a lot of fun to read. If you have been following my blog, you will know that I love books that are written in rhyming prose. This book was a spooky delight! It counted monsters down from twelve, then gives them all a Halloween party! It was fun to read and fun for my kids to listen to. Perfect for Halloween, too.
I love Guy Parker-Rees’ illustrations. They are bright, colorful, and fun. A master of his craft, he lends his creative hand to enhance the enjoyment of this spooktacular party!
