Spooky Spooky Spooky by Cathy Maclennan

Join a cast of creepy critters on a spooky journey through the darkest hours of the night. The moon is high in the sky, and velvety bats, howling cats, slithering slugs and slippery snails are all out and about. A fantastically spooky - but never scary - read-aloud tale to share again and again.


'Pairs bright, bouncy illustrations with a lyrical rhyme, providing a gentle introduction to Halloween for the youngest members of the family.' - Seattle PI

'A delightful alliterative rhyme about the creepy but really harmless creatures of the night that trick-or-treaters may encounter.' - North Jersey Record
