For Little Spooks: Spooky Boo-A Halloween Adventure by Lily Karr
WELCOME TO OUR HAPPY HAUNTED HOUSE.
WON'T YOU COME INSIDE?
WE WERE WAITING FOR YOU!
Even the youngest baby spooks will get to experience the fun of visiting a haunted house on Halloween in Lily Karr's new Spooky Boo! A Halloween Adventure (Scholastic, 2011).
Just inside the Spooky Boo house are skinny skeletons, who invite the visiting reader to look in their mirror, where they can see themselves tall and skinny, too! The trick mirrors embedded in the sturdy board pages also allow the viewers to see themselves as if they were wrapped as mummies and as green-faced monsters. There are Halloween critters behind each lift-the-flap door, window, and cupboard, and when the lights go out, there's some icky goo all stuck up in werewolf fur for a touch-and-feel thrill.
It's an armchair excursion through the neighborhood haunted house, with just enough spooky touches to make this little book a Halloween adventure for the smallest little would-be spook!
