Synopsis: One by one, a cat, a bat, a werewolf, a monster, a mummy, a zombie, and other frightful creatures emerge in a dark house where they chase, wrestle, and roar--until the doorbell rings and in walks a group of fearless trick-or-treaters that knows exactly what to do!

Discussion topics: To be posted soon ...

Craft ideas:
•  Add another verse, or two. What happened after the children left? Before they arrived? What happened to the Fiend of Bloody Gore? Write and illustrate.
•  What's your costume going to be? What would it be if you could be anything in the world? Draw!

*Note: These craft ideas are just suggestions. You can use them, but you don't have to use them. You can expand upon them, or add your own twist. Remember, though, that the focus of your time should not be on the development and execution of a craft; the focus should be on the read-aloud and the enjoyment of the book!
