No rattling bones about it. There's never been a horror book like this one before. A madcap spoof on tales of terror, this clever meeting of broomsticks and slapstick, monsters and mischief is so funny, it's scary. Just how funny, you ask? Let's just say a "RIP"ping good time is in store for those who know a good joke (or a devilishly bad one) when they hear it. And, how scary? This comedy of horrors promises to leave even cowards screeeaaming for more.
Completely original, wickedly zany, this hilarious tongue-in-cheek collection of silly spine tinglers and spooky rib ticklers is Kevin O'Malley at his ghoulish best.

He is also the illustrator and coauthor of the best-selling Miss Malarkey series for Walker & Company. Kevin lives in Baltimore, Maryland, with his wife and two sons.From Kirkus Reviews:
A comic book in picture-book clothing, more akin to MAD magazine than to anything by Sendak, Macaulay, Van Allsburg, or other practicioners of the form. A heavy-lidded, mustachioed host in an armchair, wearing a Steve Martinstyle fake arrow through his head, introduces campfire stories and other old chestnuts, for example, about the man who ominously announces his impending visit on the telephone: ``I am the Viper.'' Of course, he turns out to be the viper who has come to vash the vindows. A section of bad jokes breaks whatever tension might be in the air: blood-drinking, bathroom humor, a lice joke. Most children will have heard it all on the playground, but none of it is worth immortalization in this format. Typeface mania, dialogue balloons, and droll commentary by a dog do not alter the book's low origins and utter lack of originality. (Picture book. 5-8) -- Copyright ©1997, Kirkus Associates, LP.
