This book, as well as "Nightmare: Poems to Trouble Your Sleep," by Jack Prelutsky are full of what Halloween poems should be. Scary, funny, thoughtful, and did I say scary? The artwork is striking in that it is a bit scary too. My two favorites books by Mr. Prelutsky.
I first read this book when I was in the 4th grade. The Headless Horseman poem and pictures terrified me so much that I couldn't even look at the book. 7 years later and it still sends a chill down my spine
