Staff Reviews


If you think this book is only about Halloween, you are wrong. It is about friendship and helping each other and problem-solving and rhyming, which are timeless.

— Bekah

Description


This fun family read-aloud is a story of quick wits, friendship, and inclusivity from the creators of The Gruffalo, and this board book edition is perfect for little hands. 

This rollicking, rhyming tale from master storyteller Julia Donaldson is the perfect Halloween read-aloud for the youngest listeners. A friendly witch, hungry dragon, and muddy monster learn about friendship, and readers will delight in the surprising (and not too scary) ending.
