Julia Eccleshare's Pick of the Month, September 2015   Best-selling Janet and Allan Ahlberg tell a deliciously spooky and ultimately joyful  story about all the things skeletons get up in a dark dark night. The Big Skeleton, the Little Skeleton and the Dog Skeleton live in a dark dark cellar at the bottom of a dark dark house. One night they decide to go out and do a bit of frightening ….In fact, the Skeletons can’t frighten anyone! Instead, they visit some other skeletons and have a lot of fun playing in the park.  Skeletons have never been better playmates than in this vividly illustrated laugh-out-loud picture book.   ~ Julia Eccleshare
