They won't tell you which crack is the crack you shouldn't step on, or if there even is a crack you shouldn't step on. It could be any crack, so don't step on any crack. It could be no crack, but you don't want to chance something bad happening. What could happen? They won't tell you that either; it could be anything. Anything bad. Or it could be nothing.
The kids liked this book because they are currently obsessed with the game. I found the book to be a bit weird--so maybe I am too grown up for it. We liked the illustrations though.

this book was not well written and a little scary for a children's book. my daughter enjoys the scary books usually but the author and illustrations took this a bit far.

Quite funny I should say.
read at library to my sons special needs class. it was a favourite with the other kids in my sons class, but did not grab my son's attention.

Yes we've done it as a child. I think this book goes too far. The boy is afraid to move by the end.

Funny stuff! It was a good reminder of just how silly some superstitions can be.

There were no books at all in his parents' home, he recalls, but there were always comics. These were his formative literature, and their slapstick humor has been a lasting influence. "I've been talking about the comic format for years," he says. "It's the modern w ...more
