Description

A pirate bride who sinks with her ship, a ghost that gets ever larger, and a big slobbery monster with long green fingers and floppy purple lips are just a few of the characters who populate this collection of silly, spooky tales collected and retold by folklorist Judy Sierra.

A compendium of bite-size stories and rhymes, Never Kick a Ghost and Other Silly Chillers is sure to prompt repeat reading and recitation among beginning readers.
