PreSchool-Grade 2-When shy Frankenstein decides to have a Halloween party, tricky Dracula jumps on the idea and declares he'll have one as well. In a particularly mean moment, he steals all of Frankenstein's invitations, and on the day of the party, his house is full of costumed monsters while Frankenstein sits alone among his carved and lighted pumpkins. When Dracula glimpses his friend waiting patiently for guests who will never arrive, he has an abrupt change of heart and takes the party next door. Cushman's buoyant, colorful cartoons are full of funny details like Dracula's bat pj's and a mummy's pyramid house. For libraries looking for additional light reading with a hint of spookiness, the story of these unusual friends will find a ready audience.
