Trade Paperback

If you were a ghost haunting a castle and moat,
Rattling thick chains, making underpants float,
When you stopped all your moaning and screeching in fright,
How would you tell your phantom papa good night?

On Halloween night, creatures around the world tuck their little ones into bed. How do skeletons say goodnight? What about werewolves, mummies, or vampire bats? In this silly Halloween romp, young children can take a trip through spooky castles and haunted graveyards to find out!


Praise for Halloween Good Night

“The delightful illustrations make these seasonal monsters not-so-scary for very young readers. This book will fly off your holiday shelves.” —School Library Journal

“Given Cushman's cartoony illustrations, readers might be surprised by how poetic his verse is.” —Publishers Weekly

“Some details excel: The mummy mommy and baby speak hieroglyphs; the creature from the Black Lagoon is resurrected as an infant swaddled in seaweed; the opening spread, of a child reading under the blankets, is filled with items that visually foreshadow monsters to come.” —Kirkus Reviews
