About the Author:

BILL MARTIN JR is known worldwide for his classic picture books, including Chicka Chicka Boom Boom and Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? He lives in Texas. 

BARRY ROOT is the illustrator of more than thirty books for children, including Tiki and Ronde Barber’s Teammates, Game Day, and By My Brother’s Side. He lives in Drumore, Pennsylvania.

From Kirkus Reviews:

A nicely spooky cumulative Halloween tale that begins: ``One dark and stormy night Ghost floated out of the wall and he began to WAIL. Stool said, `Ghost, why do you wail?' Ghost said, `It is a dark and stormy night and so I wail.' Stool said, `Then I shall thump.' '' By the time the wind comes to ask the witch why she's flying around the house, the cumulation--including ``Candle flickers/Fire smokes/Window rattles [and] Owl hoots''--has mounted to ten for the wind to blow away (``and the WIIIINDOOOOWWW and the FLOOOOOOOR and the DOOOOOOOR...and they didn't come back till HALLOWEEN NIGHT!'' The mounting cadence will be splendid aloud; kids will begin to chime in on the first reading. Root's dark, swirling paintings of the thoroughly haunted house, lit with a ghostly glow, are right in the proper spirit. (Picture book. 3-8) -- Copyright 1993, Kirkus Associates, LP.
