Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 1-3-A collection of riddles about vampires, ghosts, ghouls, and assorted monsters. The selections are presented in an easy-to-read format with the answer immediately following each question. The selections are not particularly fresh but the illustrations are a scream. Schindler uses a fine-nibbed pen to include lots of subtle details before adding vivid watercolor washes. The sea monster who likes to eat "Fish-and-ships" shows the captain holding his nose as he abandons a vessel being consumed by a grinning sea serpent. Details like this make Creepy Riddles a superior choice for most joke or beginning-to-read collections.-Sharon R. Pearce, formerly at San Antonio Public Library, TX
