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.
Judy Sierra is a former childrens librarian who holds a PhD in folklore from UCLA. Well known for her retellings of classic stories and her offbeat, kid-friendly humor, she has written a number of childrens books, including Wild About Books and Antarctic Antics. She lives in Eugene, Oregon.
