The Haunted House That Jack Built - Helaine Becker and David Parkins

The Haunted House That Jack Built
Helaine Becker (Author)
David Parkins (Illustrator
Scholastic
ISBN 9780545985390

This wonderful Hallowe'en book for young children has a house that Jack built, a ghost, a ghoul, the mummy, the beast with the pointy horn, a fairy, a count, a skeleton, a witch, and a monster and a lot of Hallowe'en rhyming fun. The illustrations are incredible. With each page we are introduced to a new creature and the story expands. The rhyme becomes more complicated and extended as we meet the creatures and there is an unexpected twist at the end. This book will be great fun for children of all ages.
