If three dinosaurs roar when you open your door, what do you say?
"Boo!" of course! In this charmingly spooky story by Susan Hood, little trick-or-treaters learn just what to say in every Halloween situation. From rattling bones to ghostly footsteps, Susan captures all the best scares of the season—and teaches just the right way to dispel fears in favor of fun. Jed Henry's lustrous watercolors add the perfect crisp chill to this fall-weather story.
For if a skeleton groans as she rattles her bones, what do you say?
About the Author
Susan Hood never understood, as a child, why mothers worked inside the house and fathers worked outside. But her mother urged her to pursue things she hadn’t had—a good education and a career. After graduating from Smith College, Susan launched a career as a book and magazine editor at Scholastic, Sesame Street, and Nick Jr., with a dream of someday writing her own picture books. Today, she is the author of more than two hundred children’s books, including Ada’s Violin, the 2017 winner of Bank Street’s Flora Stieglitz Straus Award, given annually to “a distinguished work of nonfiction which serves as an inspiration to young people.” Susan’s two daughters and brand-new granddaughter are the inspiration behind Shaking Things Up.
