he simple rhyme of this book's narrative makes it ideal for reading aloud and the Halloween theme is very timely. A little ghost slips through what appears to be an empty house and each sound it hears means the reader will have to investigate and check behind the flap featured on each page.
mummy, an orange monster, a skeleton and a witch join the ghost in the exploration of the house, but the biggest surprise awaits the group when a light pops on to reveal another inhabitant.
esides a not too scary story, this book allows the youngster to practice counting up to five and back down again. The flaps are easy to flip while being sturdy enough to survive constant wear, which is important because this will be a very popular book around Halloween!
