Product Description

Product Description

Children will creak, clap, flap, and rattle along to this story of Witchy's house and the creepy creatures that live inside. A ghost, a bat, a cat, and a skeleton are only a few of the characters haunting the house. Illustrated with exquisitely detailed cut-paper and collage, this Halloween tale invites interaction through repetition, onomatopoeia, and infectious rhyme.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not too scary - Great artwork! 13 Oct 2011
By D. St. Cyr - Published on
This cute, cute Halloween addition by Dianne de Las Casas and illustrated by Holly Stone-Barker is a take on "The House that Jack Built". I know, there are a thousand and one stories built on this framework, but there must be a reason. When Halloween rolled around in my library, the perennial favorite of my kindergarteners (and 1st and 2nd graders) was The House that Drac Built by Judy Sierra and illustrated by Will Hillenbrand. Not only because of the myriad of scary creatures but because of the repetition, repetition, repetition. I can't speak for the rest of the world but my students always LOVED saying the story with me. Ah, the sneakiness of new vocabulary deftly dropped into a familiar chant.

But I digress ... The House that Witchy Built (Pelican Publishing, 2011) delivers on its promise of Halloween fun, including sound effects for each story element. Between the creaking, rattling, flapping, cackling and smooching - yes, I said smooching - the reader will hardly be able to hear himself above the din. Holly Stone-Barker uses cut paper and collage for the artwork. Have I ever said how much I like this technique? Well, alot, especially for lower elementary stories. Just look at the cover - kids are going to pick that right up - and every page is just as inviting.

Genres: Elementary, Early Childhood, Rhyming, Folk tales.

Things to like about this book: Fantastic illustrations! Audience participation is built right in. Fun story that is campy - including corny headstone sayings. The scare factor is very low so this is appropriate for the youngest school children.

Audience: Preschool and early elementary.

Reviewed from: Hardcover provided by publisher.

1.0 out of 5 stars The House that Witchy Built 28 Oct 2011
By Melissa Penn - Published on
As a librarian for children, I was thrilled when I received this book. Great illustrations and lots of opportunities for audience participation. I was very disappointed when I got to the page where the boy was picking his nose! In my opinion, this is poor taste. I quickly set this book aside and choose another book for story time.
