A little monster takes a walk through the woods one dark and spooky night. He hears and sees many things but they aren’t as scary as some might think. He is heading to the spooky old house at the edge of the woods. What could possibly be going on?
A fun halloween tale that is dark and yet not scary. The text is really basic but its presentation is what makes this book stand out. Every second page is opaque and the card pages have bits cut out of them. A fun little book but not a good idea if the little hands are prone to tearing it up.

In an old spooky looking house strange sounds fill the air. The girl upstairs stops her playing listens, the kids downstairs stop and listen. They then go back to what they were doing. There are creaks and crashes, slams and howls. But I’m not scared. Are you?
This is a wonderful picture book about a ghost girl and three kids exploring her house. Look closely and you will see clues as to what happened to the girl. The text is simple and the sort of text that is fun to read – full of silly noises to make. The illustrations are 3D looking, layered and interesting to look at. This would be a fun choice for a halloween book for a younger reader.
