It's Halloween and Jack and his ghouly family and friends have put together a haunted house. As the rhyme goes along, we meet a ghost, a witch, a mummy, a fairy, a monster and more.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great story This wonderful Hallowe'en book for young children has a house that Jack built, a ghost, a ghoul, the mummy, the beast with the pointy horn, a fairy, a count, a skeleton, a witch, and a monster and a lot of Hallowe'en rhyming fun. The illustrations are incredible. With each page we are introduced to a new creature and the story expands. The rhyme becomes more complicated and extended as we meet the creatures and there is an unexpected twist at the end. This book will be great fun for children of all ages.
