The verse rhymes and the illustrations are great. This book is for the little ones and it's kind of creepy. My nephew really enjoyed this. He loved all the animal bones. The little boy is brave, for sure. They loved that he yelled Pooh! That got a laugh. I thought this was cute.

I can’t believe these words are going to come out of my mouth. Halloween Forest, in my opinion, is too intense for young readers. The illustrations are just too scary. Wow! That hurt to say. Haha… I’m not sure I’ve even strung those two little words together before—too...

I wanted to give this book a higher rating, because the illustrations are so great. I love John Shelley's style. His design is great, with eerie trees reaching out in a threatening way on many of the page spreads.
Unfortunately, the story itself didn't grab me, or seem to have a great point. But,...

Too creepy and scary for young children. Maybe OK for older children who don't scare easily--the ones who don't ever think anything is in their closet or under their bed. I would suggest parents read this first before reading it to their children. It would have really scared me as a child. (Yes,...
