In this book, a brother and a sister bring home a plastic skeleton. They hang it up in the sycamore tree and name the skeleton Fred McFee. Some odd things happen, but they try to pay it no mind. I wasn't sure if I'd like this or not, but it was actually better than I thought it would be. It's actually a little bit creepy, but I don't think it will scare kids. This is definitely a great book for Halloween though. Very well-written and being a bit creepy makes it a great read.
