My daughter picked this story out of her Scholastic book club order catalog. She loves Halloween and she loves skeletons and mummies, so this one really appealed to her.

This is a really fun book to read. The author used a lot of onomatopoeia (sound words) to enhance the spooky experience of Halloween. The story was fun, exciting, and a little scary. But not too scary. I thought it contained the right amount of spook for the age group it's aimed at.

I absolutely loved loved loved the illustrations

Sammy is excited for Halloween, and trick-or-treating. But before he can go he needs to bring his grandmother some hot soup for her cold bones (it’s a family of skeletons) and his grandmother lives through the woods on a dark, windy night.
Adorable illustrations and easy reading. The words flow quite well with the story and illustrations. The illustrations are bright and colorful and the face expressions are the best. This is cute book, especially for Halloween and children who do not in anyway w

This books starts out like Little Red Riding Hood except the author uses a skeleton Sammy to take some soup to grandma's house. As he travels through the woods encounters alot of scary things but faces them along the way. Then he meets the scariest thing in the woods his friend Derek dressed as a mummy. Great book to teach students about facing her/his fears.

This book had the traditional feel of a Halloween book that is supposed to "scare" younger children, but has a much different appearance. Instead of soft colors and realistic drawings, this book has angular shapes and vibrant colors. In Skeleton Meets the Mummy, Skeleton has to go out into the woods before he can go trick-or-treating but soon he senses something following him! This is a short but cute book to use at Halloween time. It was good, but not the best.

This is agreat boko to read during October when Halloween is coming. It is part of the spooky, mystery genere that students will appreciate. THe story forces students to make prediction of the things "Skeleton" might encounter on the way to Grandma's house. fun book to read during free time as well.
great book! A little boy is sent by his mother on halloween to give his grandmother some soup. He must take the route through the woods, and when in the woods he hears some things that frighten him. When someone starts to chase him wearing a mummy costume, he eventually says that he's tired of running and solves the problem.

The Little Skeleton boy takes a walk through the forest to get to grandma's house before he goes trick-o-treating. On the way, he meets a mummy that frightens him. This book is perfect to include in your fall collection. It works on phonics, fluency, and has oversized words so children can follow along while you read aloud.

My kids got a kick out of this book. They loved all the sounds described in the story. The only down side is it was a bit too predictable. My four year old had it all figured out early on. That was a bit disappointing.
This is an amusing story about two friends on Halloween. One decides to scare the other, and they both end up having a good laugh about it. It is a lighthearted story--I thought the ending was somewhat lackluster after the buildup of the beginning. The pictures are great, though!

I grew up in Queens, NY in the 1950s with my “baby” sister, Lois. She is now a wonderful writer of young adult novels and nonfiction. My mother was born in Vienna, Austria, and my father came from Brooklyn – an interesting match! My best friends were Neil, Robbie, Krebs, and Paul. I’m still good friends with most of these guys. It was less hectic in those days – no computers, no emails, fewer TV c ...more
