I read this many times to my older grandson and it is very rythmic, ideal at bedtime to lull a tired little one. Although it's about a ghost train the drawings are funny and loved by children.

My younger grandson (cousin to the first) also loves this, it's easy to sing the chorus to the tune of "The Runaway Train" - sorry if you're not old enough to remember it, you may be able to Google it :-).

In summary, don't hesitate, it isn't scary - in fact, if any child is currently frightened of the dark, this could be an ideal book, the ghosts are really scared of humans!

The three Funnybones skeletons return for a night out... On a ghost train! A trip to a very different seaside ensues, but it's not a scary read for a small child.

It's funny to see convention played with - a monsters' beauty parade, night at the seaside, and what we would think scary becomes their world. The scariest thing in it for them is a baby crying!

Well illustrated to keep the skeletons likeable, and easy to read at bedtime. Good for ages 3-6.

My son loves the funny bones collection. This book was in very good condition when it arrived. My son is very pleased with the book. It makes an interesting bed time story book and the fact there are speech bubbles means we get to act out the story together. Very good fun and helps to spark an interest in reading!

Three skeletons stand on a station, waiting for a train, but they get more than they bargain for when the ghost train pulls in. The book is fun, well written with very good illustrations. Suitable to be "read to" but also great for "new readers" just starting out.

My 3year old (and husband) enjoyed the library book so much, we have now bought our own copy!

My children love to read this with me everynight...

The story is engaging and the aliteration makes for some chuckles(of course with the spooky creepy voices - added by me), the pictures are clear and dynamic allowing for quick and easy identification of the characters.

All the Funnybones series of books have been a big hit with my children. I wish the original video could be re-released on DVD, as these are timeless classics, like all of the Ahlberg tales.
