Format: Paperback
My 4 year old found this book hilarious and it was a favourite for quite a while. We had originally got it from the library but he loved it so much we bought our own copy. My son says he loves the story because 'the parrot is very naughty and says very rude things.' The parrot only says a couple of 'naughty' and 'rude' things but it obvioulsy apprealed to my sons sense of homour and was enough to make him laugh out loud every time we read it. He is 6 now and still loves it!!

Format: Paperback
This children's classic centres on the adventures of a big skeleton, a little skeleton and a dog skeleton. They venture out from their dark dark cellar in the hope of finding someone to scare. However, since everyone is asleep in bed, they have to make do with scaring themselves. The results of which are hilarious!
One of the great things about this book is that the repetitive nature of the language ("On a dark dark hill, there was a dark dark town. In the dark dark town there was a dark dark street") means children (both readers and non-readers) can easily join in with the rhythm.
It is great fun to read the story one-to-one or with a group of children. It is sure to become a best-loved book on the book shelf. Whilst the story is funny and has great accompanying illustrations, be warned that for children younger than say four, the style and nature of the book may be a little menacing!

In a dark, dark memory...
I used to love this a child and I still love it now! Although Amber doesn't sit still long enough to listen to me reading it to her she loves looking at all the pictures. They are nice and vivid colours. If your child likes books like these Meg and Mog are another good one!

This is a great story for young children. The pictures are bold, the story is funny, and also scary! I love to read it aloud to little ones who can easily help to read the captions.
I always enjoy the Ahlbergs' stories and would recommend them to any parent or teacher of young children.

My son had this book when he was young. He's now grown up. My daughter remembered the book and asked about it for her young children. I don't know what happened to it, so ordered a new copy. I read the book the moment it arrived. It's just as funny and well illustrated as I remember. I'm sure my grandchildren (and my son and daughter) will love it.

An amazing book which I never bored of as a child and am now reading to my 3 year old son...he absolutely loves it! I have now invested in more books within the series (the collection for sale via Amazon is great value!). A charming book that can be enjoyed by all generations because of the humour and the fantastic bright illustrations!
