I first read this nearly 3 years ago. I found it while searching my library's website for books to read for the summer reading program. I love reading poetry, I love Halloween and just creepy things in general. I thought this would at least a good read, but I ended up loving it.I had never read or heard of Jack Prelutsky before, but after reading this, I instantly became a fan. I'm sure the book is probably considered to be for children, as his other books of poetry are, but I believe adults would enjoy this collection of poetry as well. The poems and illustrations are both well-written and quite creepy. It's a perfect read for Halloween and those who love all things creepy.
