Kindergarten-Grade 3–All of the ghosts in the teeny tiny school are excited about the upcoming Make a Monster contest–except the timid teeny tiny ghost, who finds the very idea frightening. At the end of the school day, he has not come up with any inspiration for his picture. On the way home, he flies over a dump filled with "raggy, saggy sofas" and wires, springs, clocks, and wheels. He gathers together a box of assorted junk and goes home. That evening, he constructs his monster. When he takes his junkyard creation to school, the other students smirk, snicker, and giggle. During recess, however, the Spook and Spirit Club judges the entries. The blue ribbon is hanging on teeny tiny ghost's friendly monster. In Munsinger's funny illustrations, the school is replete with spiders, bats, and cobwebs. The students are fashionably dressed in hoodies, T-shirts, and skirts. The teeny tiny ghost sports his signature red baseball cap and clutches his two black cats. The ghosts are energetic in action and expression, and their creations are more goofy than scary. Great fun as a Halloween read-aloud.–Linda Staskus, Cuyahoga County Public Library, Parma, OH
