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