About the Author:

Calef Brown began his career as a tour guide at an early age, when he discovered the simple joy of pointing things out. He is also an artist, writer, and frequently a blue elephant. Mr. Brown’s illustrations have appeared in many magazines and newspapers, and his paintings have been exhibited in N.Y., L.A., S.F., and other places without fancy initials, like Osaka and Rome. He lives in Maine.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 2-5–Brown's playful collection of poems and paintings is likely to inspire as many giggles as it does shivers. Readers meet a werewolf named Jack, Duncan the shrunken head, and an unhappy mummy: “Why oh why/was I so badly mummified?/Where is the pride/in good mummification?” Gory René admires his self-portrait, a faithful rendering of his festering sores and hideous mange until his painted image turns oddly handsome, and in shame, he hides it away in the attic. “The Vumpire” stares at the back of players' necks; and the “Oompachupa Loompacabra” lures goats with chocolate bars, then “gobbles up their brains.” Brown's acrylic illustrations add to the creepy silliness: an artful mix of naive and stylized, whimsical details and vibrant color. Young readers will relish the wordplay and find themselves torn to choose a favorite among this wacky menagerie. Fans of Eve Merriam and Lane Smith's Halloween ABC (1995) and Spooky ABC (2002, both S & S) will be won over by Brown's whimsy.Marilyn Taniguchi, Beverly Hills Public Library, CA
