Editorial Reviews

Dreadful Tales - Colum McKnight
"I can say with full authority, as a children's book reviewer, that this is one of - if not *the* - best books on the market for the little ones who love their monsters. The art is incredible, the rhyming is timed perfectly, and best of all, it allows the parent to spend much cherished time with their lil' monster. My kids want to read this all the time now."--KINDERSCARES on "If I Were Your Monster"
Author - Jonathan Maberry

    SCOTT NICHOLSON'S "DUNCAN THE PUNKIN" (A REVIEW)

    This is a delightful little book that starts out as a scary story about what not to do when you're a pumpkin on Halloween. The momma pumpkin tries to warn her baby Duncan about how important it is to be still and quiet so he won't get picked in the pumpkin patch. In the end it gives a great moralistic story about behavior.

    I would definitely recommend this book to ages 5 and up!
