Synopsis

Halloween Good Night by Doug Cushman

If you were a ghost haunting a castle and moat, rattling thick chains, making underpants float, when you stopped all your moaning and screeching in fright, how would you tell your phantom papa good night? On Halloween night, creatures around the world tuck their little ones into bed. How do skeletons say goodnight? What about werewolves, mummies, or vampire bats? In this silly Halloween romp, young children can take a trip through spooky castles and haunted graveyards to find out!

Reviews

The delightful illustrations make these seasonal monsters not-so-scary for very young readers. This book will fly off your holiday shelves. School Library Journal

Given Cushman's cartoony illustrations, readers might be surprised by how poetic his verse is. Publishers Weekly

Some details excel: The mummy mommy and baby speak hieroglyphs; the creature from the Black Lagoon is resurrected as an infant swaddled in seaweed; the opening spread, of a child reading under the blankets, is filled with items that visually foreshadow monsters to come. Kirkus Reviews

I love finding new books to read. My mummy and me look at the new ones coming out. I have written reviews of some of them!

Jessica Cobbin – age 7

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

Katie Lonsdale

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

Lovereading is just a convenient way to find new books and hear others opinions on them.

I have told all my friends, family & teachers to see for themselves just how great the site is. Without fail, they are hugely impressed.

I love all the books they recommend & put up for me to review. I also love the fact that they give new authors the chance to share their boo
