Up And At Ya!: Silly Ghosts: A Haunted Pop-up Book by Janet Lawler
SILLY GHOSTS POP UP OUT OF THE NIGHT.
WHATEVER ARE THEY SEARCHING FOR?
Well, what all ghosts want on Halloween night! Midnight feasts, furry beasts to spook, a candle-lit party with lots of creepy games, and most of all, special kids to join them in Halloween treats and tricks.
And that's what these outrageous ghosts will get whenever any kid opens this book and activates the large and clever double-page pop-up spreads that designers Janet Lawler, Ana Chambers, and Yevgeniya Yeretskaya have dreamed up in their Silly Ghosts a Haunted Pop-up Book (Jumping Jack Press, 2011). There's also pull-tab fun which the creators have engineered into this charming little book., as the ghosts "blow" out the flickering candles on a candelabra, leaving wispy smoke trails behind, or a mischievous dog who turns over a treat bag to spill its candy all over the floor. There is also delightfully frightful wordplay in the funny, punny tombstones which abound in the illustrations, with such inscriptions as Rustin Peace, Moe R. Bid, Will B. Back, and I. M. Dead throughout.
More fun than a barrel of monkeys, this Halloween pop-up fills the trick-or-treat bag for holiday fun.
