Ten Creepy Monsters

Ten Creepy Monsters Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Ten creepy monsters met ’neath a gnarled pine.

One blew away,

And then there were nine.

And so the countdown begins . . . A mummy, a witch, a ghost, a werewolf, a vampire, and others all gather, but one by one their crowd diminishes. At last there is only one creepy monster left. But what kind of monster is it?

Squeals of laughter are sure to accompany the reading of this book from bestselling illustrator Carey F. Armstrong-Ellis, as 10 creepy monsters set out for fun.

Praise for Ten Creepy Monsters

"Armstrong-Ellis injects just the right amount of humor into her portrayals of the ghoulish bunch, keeping the tone appropriately light."

Kirkus Reviews

"Generously detailed acrylics provide a touch of nefarious charm, while a tender surprise ending should gratify trick-or-treaters."

Publishers Weekly

"Fun for Halloween or for counting anytime."

School Library Journal

"Armstrong-Ellis’ textured images, full of spooky spirit and clever detail, add to the fun. A happy Halloween outing."

Booklist

"With rich language and a delightfully dark nighttime palette, this pleasing rhyme begs to be acted out or performed with puppets. The illustrations are appropriately ghoulish."

BookPage

"A perfect Halloween read-aloud but a great way to relieve malaise on any day, this picture book also helps young readers learn to count as the monsters fall by the wayside in gruesome fashion."

Reading Today Online

The Seattle Times

"Carey F. Armstrong-Ellis delivers a delightful rhyming lesson in subtraction."

Review:

"Armstrong-Ellis stages a light Halloween countdown starring 10 monsters who leave the story one at a time: 'Ten creepy monsters met 'neath a gnarled pine./ One blew away, and then there were nine.' The motley group includes a vampire resembling Bela Lugosi's Dracula, a zombie that loses its foot, and an aquatic monster that falls in love with a human in a rowboat. Generously detailed acrylics provide a touch of nefarious charm, while a tender surprise ending should gratify trick-or-treaters. Ages 4 — 8." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
