Reader beware! This is the scariest book ever! Or so claims its melodramatic ghost narrator. You can go ahead and turn the page, but don't expect him to come with you. Anything might pop out of that black hole in the middle of the forest. What do you mean it's just a bunny? Well, it's probably a bunny with big fangs. Watch out, it's--picking pumpkins with its friends, you say? Actually, despite the ghost's scare-mongering, none of the animal characters in the illustrations seem scary at all. . . . What's up with that? Many delights, such as surprises after the page turn, an alarmist narrator, and punch lines to anticipate make this book a scream for both kids and parents.

PRAISE FOR THE HAPPIEST BOOK EVER
"The ever-popular Shea, creator of, among many others, the fierce Dinosaur vs. series, goes for smiles with a barrage of feel-good images on bright yellow backgrounds. Who can resist a dancing cake? . . . best-selling Shea is back with another jaunty picture book that is sure to be met with enthusiasm."—Booklist
Orlean's The Library Book is a fascinating melding of true crime, history, and theory on arson. L.A. Public Library's 1986 fire plants a seed that only Orlean could bring to flower. I cherished the bibliophile and library love in this book. So intriguing!
