Creepy Crawly Critters (An I Can Read Book) by Nola Buck. Pictures by Sue Truesdale

The 13 Words!: Cute and sweet collection of simple rhymes combined with kid friendly color illustrations.

The Creature from the Back Cover!
"Itchy witches, groaning ghosts, and plump pumpkins are just a few of the characters in this collection of giggle-producing Halloween tongue twisters. It's so much fun, it's like trick-or-treating for your tongue!"

The Facts that Attacked Mars!: Creepy Crawly Critters is a hardcover collection of Halloween tongue twisters published in 1996 by HarperTrophy, as part of the I Can Read series of books. As a level 1 book, it's a guaranteed easy read.

The Monster Speaks!: Cute. That's about all I can really say about this one. It's hard to take all of it at one sitting, even though I'm a moderate fan of alliteration. If I was 3 or 4 years old though, I am sure this would be a favorite of mine. The illustrations are quite nice though.

What Lurks Between These Covers?

"A Humongous Hug for Henry
On Halloween !!
lots of love from xo
Auntie J---- (and Nola Buck too!)

I'm not sure why Auntie J-something includes Nola Buck(the author), but I like her attempt at a Halloween tongue twister.

Though not technically a monster get-together, these two illustrations depict a sort of get-together, and that's fine with me

The Horror!:
Nothing really. Overall, not much bad can really be said about a book for very early readers with colorful illustrations and rhyming alliteration.

Just found your forum. I love anything to do with Halloween as you may see by my blog. I have a couple of books shared on the blog you may be interested in from Alvin Schwartz.
