One by one young readers meet the creatures that live in Drac’s house--a bat, a werewolf, a monster, a mummy, a zombie, and other frightful monsters. They chase, wrestle, and roar until the doorbell rings and in walks a group of fearless trick-or-treaters who know exactly what to do. Clever, repetitive text--a playful adaptation of the popular nursery rhyme about the house that Jack built--and creepy paintings are sure to make this a spooky favorite for years to come. “The skillfully executed artwork adds a zesty dollop of suspense to a familiar storyline.”--The Horn Book

PreSchool-Grade 3-A Halloween version of the familiar cumulative rhyme. Things get a little out of hand at Count Dracula's house- "This is the mummy from days of yore/that rose from the coffin under the floor/that fell on the monster whose bloodcurdling roar/startled the fearsome manicore..." It is only when a group of trick-or-treaters comes on the scene that all is carefully put back to rights. The darkly muted oil pastel illustrations augment the ghoulishness of the tale, with a hidden clue leading readers from one double-page spread to the next. The creatures are suitably gruesome, but because of their friendly expressions should be nonthreatening. A definite hit for holiday story programs.
