Spook-tacular reads for Halloween!

This is the skeleton who nailed down the floor,

That upset the werewolf who put in a door,

That stopped the spider who started to crawl,

That shocked the mummy who raised the wall,

Inside the house that monsters built.

This Is the House That Monsters Built uses the building verse characteristic of the original nursery rhyme "This Is the House That Jack Built." A vampire, a ghost, a zombie, a mummy, and more all contribute to the spooky fun in the house that monsters built.

Praise for Detective Blue by Steve Metzger and illustrated by Tedd Arnold"Metzger's clever story, recounted in deadpan, Dragnet-style prose, will entertain anyone with knowledge of Mother Goose. ... This will make a popular read-aloud." --BooklistPraise for Pluto Visits Earth! by Steve Metzger and illustrated by Jared Lee"The ink and color-wash illustrations offer dynamic, cartoonlike, and sometimes amusing or absurd details of life in space." --BooklistPraise for There Was a Cold Lady Who Swallowed Some Snow! by Lucille Colandro and illustrated by Jared Lee"Lee's cartoon art extends the absurd humor in delightful drawings of the manic woman gobbling her strange meal." --Booklist
