Book Review: Spooky Hour, by Tony Mitton/Guy Parker-Rees (Illustrator)

Uncategorized

From the creators of DINOSAURUMPUS! comes their new Halloween picture book about counting.

“Listen!
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!
