    Love the pattern, rhythm and rhyming in this, especially the way it built a cumulative sense. Plus, a whole lot of fun!

    Soooo cute! Wonderful rhythm, predictions at the end of every page, and counting practice. Would be great for a slightly spooky storytime.

    My 2yo LOVES this book, we have to read it two or three times in a row! He loves to name all the creatures as the story goes on and has learned his first sight word, “Boo!” I love the counting and the fun and completely not-scary illustrations. Great for Halloween or all year.

It challenges your little one to guess what spooky creature will be discovered around the next corner. The guessing is made easier by the wonderful visual hints that the illustrator leaves to make that happen. The book is written in verse and introduces you to a blobby, happy, little blue ghost who goes slip-sliding down the hallway. Suddenly he hears a groan.....he encounters an egg-headed mummy. They both continue on his walk, and low and behold they find an overly large, yellow monster.....on to bump into a skeleton which "makes four in the house,/the creepy haunted house, /In the creepy haunted house,/On this dark, spooky night, cold and bleak.' A witch is then added which the completes the group of five. The illustrations really drive the story. They are full -spread, digital artwork with loveable little creatures that are set against a splotched background that give you the eery feeling they are housed up in an old, abandoned dwelling. The last creature they run across is the scariest of all.....a boy!!!! When he is exposed it causes the five to panic and rush from the house like it was on fire. As they are tearing off into the night the little boy calls out to them, "Good night." The ghost and his friendly motley crew at first are worried who they might meet around the next corner but smile as they encounter another one of their variety. All-in-all this book is winner. It is non-threatening, humorous and sure to be a hit with your child as you draw them gently, and happily into the season of Halloween.

    This ALMOST got a 4 star but I give in a 3 1/3 because it felt like it just abruptly ended! This is a counting book without it being an IN YOUR FACE counting book and I LOVE THAT! So the other day, a local author wanted me to look at her manuscript for her children's book. It is an Alphabet book, with numbers, (okay stay with me here) So A-1 and Z-26 etc . Now why this women thinks it is important to link A with the number 1 and Z with 26 and M with 13 I just don't know.

When I was talking to her I was trying to be polite (everyone thinks their book is the best) but there are a zillion alphabet and counting books, what makes yours special? I pointed out more graphic things then content things..so we will see where it goes. SO to the point, This book is a fun way of counting and have a Halloween (holiday books are a triple threat) without being the same old 1 apple 2 Banana etc etc BOO!

Around the very last corner. IS THE MOST FRIGHTENING THING OF ALL! A little boy. The scary monsters flee into the night leaving the boy all alone. Written and illustrated for little creepers, this book is good solid Halloween humor. The illustrations are warm and welcoming with a little bit of disjointed perspective to keep things funny as the text provides the drama. Each page is another opportunity to discover something scary and you know that the author is building the drama. This adds to the humorous twist ending as it is revealed that the ghouls are more afraid of a little boy than he is of them. Proving that all parents are correct when they tell their children, "it's more afraid of you than you are of it." Pick up this little thriller if you have a preschooler who is looking for some Halloween fun.

    The visual style is fun, covering various classic monsters but not being too scary. There is also a good cadence to the text. For the story, each scary figure is initially nervous about hearing something, and then finds that the noise is a new friend. Then, when the last character found is a human, this time they are all really scared and leave. That's fine and plays with expectations, but there was something comforting about the growing group.

    Ghost in the House Thanks so very much Ms Paqutte for this very funny, well illustrated and colorful book! My granddaughter and I enjoyed it very much laughing the whole while she was reading. We never ever suspected that the ghosts and monsters were the ones that were scary. We never expect that 😂😂😂. I would recommend this book to parents who would like to read a funny book at bedtime while teaching their children how to read! I gave this book five stars because we laughed hysterically.

    "In the creepy haunted house, on a dark, spooky night," one by one a Halloween creature appears. Each time the suspense builds but it's OK, the next creature is a friend. Until... a boy appears. Then the monsters run away afraid and the boy just says "good night." This is a nice, non-scary Halloween book for young children. It would have liked it if the monsters didn't run away at the end, resulting in a Halloween party, but this twist on who is scary to whom is also interesting.

    Actual rating 4.25 This is just so cute. Ideal for fall and Halloween, but truly suitable for any time of the year. All the creatures in the book are so cute. Aside from it being a fun story with bright fun pictures, there’s a subtle message about perception and judgments. Kids quickly learn that no one, or creatures, is quite what they seem, plus, they might be a friend. Recommended as a great bedtime story.

    I don't normally write reviews for kids books, but maybe I should start! I really loved this book. Super quick, but the lilting jingle of the words really got me, and even my 4 month old was enthralled when I read it to my four year old. Has some easy counting up to 5, but really it's just the phonetics that make it so fun. Happy Halloween in August! 😂 I don't normally write reviews for kids books, but maybe I should start!

    Super cute rhyming book for the little ones. It’s a lift the flap style book and my kids simply loved it! The monsters aren’t scary and a book like this can be really fun and suspenseful, if read out loud by someone with some dramatic flare.

    A fun, simple counting book based on the author's childhood game with her sister. It's a cute read-aloud for a classroom or library setting for Halloween.
