This is much simpler than most of the Berenstain Bears books--definitely a beginner book. Because it rhymes, it has a great read outloud quality. The pictures tell half the story and they are wonderful. It is spooky without being scary and very exciting.
It does not exactly fit into the Berenstain Bears cannon (there are several earlier ones, all beginner books, which don't exactly). There are the characters who will be Brother, Sister and Cousin Fred plus the mom, but they aren't necessarily those characters. Which means if (for some reason) you didn't like the regular series, that shouldn't prevent you from checking out this book.
