This is the House That Monsters Built
That upset the werewolf who put in a door,
That stopped the spider who started to crawl,
That shocked the mummy who raised the wall,
Inside the house that monsters built."
This Is the House That Monsters Built uses the building verse characteristic of the original nursery rhyme "This Is the House That Jack Built." A vampire, a ghost, a zombie, a mummy, and more all contribute to the spooky fun in the house that monsters built.
Young children will love the zany artwork featuring all the different monsters from bestselling illustrator Jared Lee!
Lee does the illustration for the "From the Black Lagoon" series, and his drawings are creepy in dark in a way that will send a chill of recognition through a kindergarten student without being truly scary.
There are a lot of good books to read for Halloween, from Robert Bright's Georgie the Ghost (1944) to Thayer's Gus Was a Friendly Ghost (1962) Schwartz's In a Dark, Dark Room (1985). There are also Halloween versions of every picture book series from Froggy to The Berenstain Bears, so there is always a need for more titles to read for the best kid's holiday of the year.
