The 13 Nights of Halloween
(I am reading this book as part of my participation in the FrightFall Read-A-Thon.)
Title: The 13 Nights of Halloween Author: Guy Vasilovich
Publisher: HarperCollins Pages: 40

I checked this book out from my school library.

From the inside cover:
On the first night of Halloween, what does your mummy give you?  A bright, shiny skeleton key, of course!
In fact, each of the thirteen nights leading up to the big night, your mummy is ready with gifts that include everything from singing skulls to demons dancing to icky eyeballs….

A parody of The Twelve Days of Christmas, this Halloween picture book is hilariously charming.  Bright, gorgeous illustrations bring all sorts of magical creatures to life.  (My personal favorite was the 6 corpses caroling.)  All this book needs is an accompanying CD to play along with it.  Young children will enjoy the repetition, but the book is delightful for all ages.  A must-add to your Halloween collection.

Read this book if”
*You love Halloween picture books
*You love parody
