In a house filled with ghouls, witches, and monsters, everyone is busy getting ready for the big night. Yes, there are the trick-or-treaters, but the highlight is the monster ball.
A fast-moving story, pumpkins, ghouls, shrieks, and wonderful illustrations make this a fun story to share for Halloween.
We read this every night for two weeks up to Halloween and even a few times after. It didn't take long for our daughter catch on the the words and start reading herself.
As knockoffs go, this was a pretty good twist on the "Twas the night before" theme. The illustrations are wonderful, with just enough ghoul to be Halloween, but not so scary that they scare the intended audience. I loved the twist at the end.
This picture book uses the cadence of Twas the Night Before Christmas to tell its ghoulish story.
This is a seasonal story for sharing.

Read with a 6-year-old girl.
Borrow. This is a great book, and you'll probably read it a couple years in a row, but because it's seasonal book, it has a very short shelf life.
