I am a mother of two young children as well as a preschool teacher and I really enjoy reading this book. The first time I read this book to my children I had to pause several times for them to stop laughing. The rhythm of the book adds to the joy. It is always the first thing out of the halloween box each year.

I I love the story and the non digital book is awesome. The way they have the pages set up make it hard for the reader to make the story flow unless you know it.

This book has become both mine and my children's new favorite Halloween book. My kids love it so much that its a must read every night. We end up signing the song in the car and around the house because it so catchy and fun. I am so glad that I bought this book and look forward to reading it each Halloween.

I purchased this book for my children based on the other reviews. It does not work. Basically for 6.99 we got the cover, the copy right info., and the dedication page. There was absolutely no story. This was a huge disappointment and waste of money!
