Spooky Hour by: Tony Mitton and Guy Parker-Rees

Spooky Hour

The cover of this book immediately grabbed my attention. A dancing skeleton - what could be better for the Halloween Season. But upon starting the book it got even better, for it is also a numbers book, with magical, mythical creatures gathering through the woods, and up to the castle. From Trolls, Wizards and Knights to spiders, skeletons and ghosts, they all gather in groups by their numbers and make their way to a Halloween gathering. This is a great story with fantastic illustrations. Will become a family seasonal favorite I am sure.
