Boo Watch out for this rollicking, cumulative counting book for a Halloween treat that's more playful than scary.
"There's a ghost in the house, In the creepy haunted house, On this dark spooky night all alone."
When a little ghost goes slip-sliding down the hallway, he suddenly hears...a groan Turns out it's only a friendly mummy, who shuffles along with the ghost, until they encounter...a monster As the cautious explorers continue, they find a surprise at every turn and add another adorably ghoulish friend to the count. But you ll never guess who is the scariest creature in the house
