Recommends it for: halloween
A boy is reading a spooky book about a girl on a spooky night who is reading a spooky book about a boy on a spooky night....until the thunder and lightning and scary shadows and howling lead them to each other. A bit too confusing for most children to grasp --especially in the K-3 intended audience. Older kids might get a smile out of it.

Recommends it for: parents reading with their children
This is a fun book with circular logic that is both creepy and mindboggling. The illustrations are wonderful, with small details that really make the story come alive. The fact that the little boy is reading about the little girl who is reading about the little boy...and so on, could be a bit confusing for younger children, but our oldest loved it. She borrowed it from her elementary school library, read it on her own, and then insisted we read it together. She liked it so much that she was ...more

3 3/4 Stars for me! (Hint hint hint Good Reads I would love a half system!!!

So this book sends you down an weird/scary road, but I think at the first I understand where it is going.

Andrew is reading a book about Zo Zo
Zo Zo is reading a book about Andrew.... and it is SCARY!!

But it wraps up at the end as new friends!!

Andrew is home alone and reading a spooky book about a girl named Zo Zo who is also home alone and reading a spooky book. And what's strange is what happens to Zo Zo in the book, also begins to happen to Andrew.

Very nice illustrations and a clever story. It's fun, but creepy also. I'm sure children will really enjoy this.

This would be a good choice for Halloween. It's spooky without actually being scary and has a good rhythm. The concept is cool, with two kids reading each other's stories in the 'spooky book'. The pictures are nice.

This is a rather clever story, a boy is home alone reading a spooky book about a girl that is home alone reading a spooky book, as the boy reads the things in the story begin to happen for real, leading to the girl from the story arriving on the boy's doorstep.
