Description

A playful skeleton lives for trick-or-treating in this charming, laugh-out-loud picture book perfect for the Halloween season.

Snap my fingers and rattle my bones—it’s Halloween!

Skelly B. Skeleton lives for Halloween: the trick-or-treating, the costumes…the TRICK-OR-TREATING! Then a tumble leaves him in pieces, and Skelly just might miss out on his favorite holiday. Luckily, a variety of animals—a snake, a chicken, a colony of ants—happen along to put Skelly back together again…to hilarious effect. It will take the help of some resourceful children to make things right and save the day.

With exuberant text from David Martin and bold art from Lori Richmond, Skelly’s Halloween is sure to delight trick-or-treaters of all ages.
