This is a cute book to read to kids for Halloween (if only there were some around to read to)
I enjoyed it and will add it to my collection of books to read for Halloween.
I got my copy from The Goodreads giveaway.
Great little Halloween book to read to your kids....IF you can find it. It's out of print now. I constantly look for it in book shops. I don't want to pay $75 for it on EBAY so don't tell me you found it! Your kids will request it over and over...especially if you can do the VOICES!!!!
I loved this book as a kid and it popped into my head recently around Halloween. I would love to get my hands on a copy, as the one I read as a child has long disappeared. I've tried looking on amazon but the cheapest copy sells for $40!!! It's a great book, though.
I probably read this book at least 25 times, it was my son's favorite book as a young boy and he took it out of the library every time he could find it. Holds wonderful memories of my son who so loved the library and so loved Halloween.

My mom has an old copy of this book I used to read every year. It's been out of print for a long time, but it was reissued last year. I bought it and am glad to have it. It was as much fun as I remember.
This was a favorite book of mine as a kid. I've found a copy of it at our local library and read it to my kids. They live it too. It's a Halloween tradition now:) I'd love to find an affordable copy.
