It MIGHT have highlighting, underlining, be missing a dust jacket, or SLIGHT water damage, but over-all itâ?TMs still a good book at a great price!

Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 2-When ten creepy monsters meet beneath a pine tree, they get into all sorts of trouble that helps readers count backward from ten to one. "Nine creepy monsters trudged with lurching gait./One lost his foot,/and then there were eight." Though dark and full of suspicious characters, the single pages and spreads rendered in rich acrylics are full of comedy, which keeps the book entertaining rather than scary. After the second to last monster-a vampire-rushes off in the sunrise, readers are left with one monster hurrying home. An abandoned mask, strewn candy, and a sleeping boy tell the rest of the story. Fun for Halloween or for counting anytime.-Julie Roach, Cambridge Public Library, MAα(c) Copyright 2011. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.

From Booklist

A collection of familiar monsters (a ghost, a witch, a mummy, and so on) heads out on a dark and creepy night and disappears, one by one, until the last ghoul standing removes his mask, drops his bag of candy, and climbs into bed. Along the way, each monster is eliminated according to his or her monsterhood: the ghost blows away; the werewolf howls at the moon; the scarecrow lights a match. Armstrong-Ellis’ textured images, full of spooky spirit and clever detail, add to the fun. A happy Halloween outing. Preschool-Grade 1. --Thom Barthelmess

My 4-year old son picked this book out at the library, and he loved it so much we had to get our own copy. He has it memorized now, and will "read" it to me!

A delight. Most kids love a creepy tale, and this one, with each cavorting monster dropping out of their night of revelry (a ghost blows away, a zombie's foot falls off) fits the bill with great gusto and humor. Here is a book that grownups will enjoy just as much as the kiddles. The ending is a gentle surprise. This year all the fairybookchildren in my domain will be receiving a copy of Ten Creepy Monsters.

I must have read this book to my kids at least a 100 times now. I've got the whole thing completely memorized! My 3 year old loves everything Halloween, all year round, and is absolutely fascinated by this book! We had it out of the library quite a few times, and then someone else had it checked it out when we tried to get it last time (the nerve!). So I just bought it. Since then we've spent many a bedtime storytime enjoying these monsters! Both my girls love it, although my 6 year old is getting a wee bit sick of it by now... I'd recommend this to anyone whose kids are into monsters!

A quick read Halloween book that was well thought out. I loved the rhyme and the way each monster left the little group. This is my new favorite children's Halloween book that I will read to my children each Halloween.
