The "Monster Mash" was a graveyard smash-and now it's a picture book by David Catrow!

The "Monster Mash" gets Wolf Man, zombies, and other monsters to dance and party in this catchy, classic song. Dracula rises out of his coffin, vampires feast in the master bedroom, and the ghouls get a jolt from Boris's electrodes.

This "graveyard smash" caught on in a flash, and it became the hit of the land. The song, written in 1962 by Bobby "Boris" Pickett and Lenny Capizzi, has gone on to sell over 4 million copies. Fifty years later, David Catrow takes it to new heights as a picture book, with his fun and wacky illustrations that are sure to get kids singing and "mashing" along.

David Catrow is the award-winning illustrator of numerous books for children, including the Max Spaniel series and Take Me Out of the Bathtub and Other Silly Dilly Songs. He lives in Springfield, Ohio, with his wife, Debbie, and their three dogs, Bubbs, Beetle, and Blue.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good illustrations The two good things about this book are that the illustrations are pretty good, and it cleared up the words to the song (I'm terrible with figuring out lyrics). #plumreview
