Overview


This classic Halloween tale is now available as a Scholastic Reader!

Bestselling author, Alyssa Satin Capucilli, and two-time Geisel Honor winner, Tedd Arnold, team up for this hilarious halloween tale that is just as much trick as it is a treat. Previously published as a paperback, this classic is now available as a Scholastic Reader. With illustrations that make the scariest creature look extremely funny and romping repetitive text, readers will never expect what happens when this haunted house has a trick-or-treater knock on its door. Ghosts, spiders, owls, skeletons and monsters take turns accidentally scaring each other in this silly, slapstick story.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Meredith Kiger and Marilyn Courtot
Readers will love the rebus, repetition and humorous treatment of the traditionally scary subject matter in this silly book. It is a cumulative tale following the scheme of "This is the House that Jack Built." However, in this case it starts with a knock on the door by a very green hand. Ghosts, spiders, cats, spooks, owls, skeletons and monsters who inhabit a haunted house take turns accidentally scaring each other until they finally wake up the monster who "stomped on huge feet" to open the door. They really lose it when confronted by a trick-or-treater and that leads to the amusing ending. Pretty soon kids who can read and even pre-readers will be recapping the incidents that happened inside this haunted house. The illustrations make the scariest creature look extremely funny so this is not a book that will scare anyone. A level 2 reader in the "Scholastic Reader" series, it has a guided reading level of "J" and a word count of 472. Reviewer: Meredith Kiger, Ph.D. and Marilyn Courtot

A fun book about all the creatures/animals that startle each other in a pile-up, silly sequence after a trick or treater knocks. While this book is designed for 1st/2nd graders to read by themselves, it works well even if you read it to them (I would say it's best for age 4 and up; not sure if younger than that would like it that much, b/c they might possibly find it a bit scary and/or not appreciate the fun, repetitive wordplay). That repetitive wordplay is fun for an adult to read (my son laughs when I read it at an increasingly fast rate), but also helps when a young reader is learning words (some of which are a bit challenging). So it works on both levels.

This is a great book. I checked it out at the library and my four year old grandson loved it. I really enjoyed reading it with him. I plan on buying it for his home library. That you for writing such an enjoyable story.
