By ELH Browning VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
This book is a very friendly look at a spooky night, written with good rhythm and flowing rhyme. There are the least scary ghosts imaginable, the likeable-looking skeletons that you see on the cover, furry spiders, twin witches etc romping through the forest, counting down from ten to one great big pumpkin pie and a night time party for all the characters who have appeared in the book. It's a beautifully illustrated bright and cheerful introduction to the Halloween characters that couldn't scare even the most timid preschooler. Although perfect for Halloween, it isn't explicitly linked to it, and so is appropriate (and doubtless will be requested at bedtime) all year round.

Format:Paperback
Absolutely brilliant. Book focuses on counting with rhyme
The flow and rhythm are great. A fave with my toddler who usually doesn't sit still.
Better than Dinosaurumpus (which is also good!)

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Was a little worried when ordering this book as my little girl scares easy. But this book is so much fun and the spooks in it are not at all scary. Have to read it at least twice a day since we got it.. very much recommend it.

Brilliant book for young people, my 3 year old loves it, holds their attention well, and lots to talk about within the book. Fab bedtime reading, especially as all the spooks go to sleep at the end, and so does my 3 year old!

By Lolo B
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
My son loved dinosaur rumpus and now loves spooky rumpus. It is a silly story with a nice rhythm. Good fun with funny illustrations with lots going on. My son loves counting the different spooks at each bit. Good bedtime story where all characters go to sleep at end.
