The Lovereading4Kids comment
Three white-boned skeletons have a great night out when they set forth with the express intention to “frighten somebody”. Big skeleton, little skeleton and dog skeleton live in the dark, dark cellar of a dark, dark house on a dark, dark hill and they set out to scare in a dark, dark night. Alas, they find everyone, including the animals in the zoo, is asleep but nonetheless they entertain themselves in the playground and enjoy frightening each other instead. The jokey text is full of repetitions making it easy to read while the illustrations provide strong visual clues.
Perfect for Reluctant Readers as well as keen readers. To view other titles we think are suitable for reluctant readers please click here.
