Twas Halloween night and all through the house
Every creature was stirring including the mouse
The walls were aflutter with little brown bats
While hordes of black spiders crept out of the cracks
By the fire in the kitchen, the witch stirred her brew;
To make it more smelly, she threw in a shoe.
There's something irresistible about this Halloween take on everyone's favorite holiday read-aloud, The Night Before Christmas. Halloween Night twists the original tale of golly old St. Nick into a not-so-spooky ghost story complete with all the traditional Halloween fixins'--ghosts, witches, spiders... You'll love the lush illustrations as much as the imaginative text. Short and sweet, it may just become a Halloween holiday tradition.
