Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Monsters pop up everywhere in Who Will You Meet on Scary Street? by Christine Tagg, illus. by Charles Fuge. A gruesome witch of a teacher greets the students at Scary School, where "junior ghoul[s]... learn to spell,/ fly brooms as well,/ and how to screech and wail." (Sept.) Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
Children's Literature
On Scary Street, every day is Halloween. The brief rhymes introduce each of nine lively pop-ups—mummy, witch, ghost, Dr. Frank N. Stein, and other unpleasant creatures. The final page reveals a surprise participant in the frightful fun. The pop-ups spring high from the page, or open wide with spikey teeth, or sip a glass of blood through a straw. The movables are set in contexts conceived by Fuge, which add appropriately obnoxious characters and details like bottles of Vampoo, Discomfort detergent, and a Ghost Office pin on the mail carrier. Solid craftsmanship, inventive design, more appealing than frightening. 2001, Little Brown, $14.95. Ages 4 to 10. Reviewer: Ken Marantz and Sylvia Marantz
