Tedd Arnold is the author and illustrator of the bestselling Fly Guy series and the illustrator of more than 60 books, including DETECTIVE BLUE. He has received Theodor Seuss Geisel Honors for HI! FLY GUY and I SPY FLY GUY! Tedd lives with his wife, Carol, in upstate New York.
PreSchool-Grade 3-A knock on the door of a haunted house creates an uproar among its inhabitants, including a spider, bats, a ghost, a cat, and a mummy. Finally, a monster stomps down the hall to confront the visitor, only to find a small version of himself. When the trick-or-treater removes his mask, the creatures are so terrified that they flee. Following the cumulative structure of "This Is the House That Jack Built," the text incorporates rebuses for key words. Judy Sierra's The House That Drac Built (Harcourt, 1995) has the same underlying rhythmic structure and also ends with the arrival of trick-or-treaters. Will Hillenbrand's illustrations in that book set a spooky mood that might send shivers down young spines. Arnold's goggle-eyed characters are more amusing than frightening, and are clearly aimed at a younger audience. Consider Capucilli's title if the demand for Halloween books exceeds the supply.
