Synopses & Reviews
This frighteningly funny collection of Halloween poems is perfect for sharing! It's that time of year again...
"Fifteen short and often silly poems introduce Halloween monsters and spooks that ham it up in Carpenter's in-your-face digital cartoons. An enormous pink monster devours everything in sight, including the words of its poem, which appear inside his gaping mouth: 'I eat spiders./ I eat slugs./ I eat any/ kind of bugs./ I eat cats/ and doggies too./ I eat rats/ (they're fun to chew).' A creepier entry portrays a girl's dark night of the soul after reading the names on tombstones: 'I've read them all and now I'm done./ I've seen my name on every one.' A gently ghoulish collection of Halloween poems to provoke both giggles and chills. Ages 58." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
