Mother Ghost: Nursery Rhymes for Little Monsters

We rated this book:


This brilliant collection of nursery rhymes for young Halloween readers will keep pages turning and laughter rolling. In What Are Little Bats Made Of?, readers explore what little bats and little ghouls are made of. Little imaginations will run wild in “Mary Had a Little Ghost” and run creepy in “Zombie Miss Muffet.” But what happens in “Sing a Song of Witches” when the blackbirds attack the witch?

Geared for the youngest readers, humor is woven in with the spooky, as in “Mary, Mary, Tall and Scary”: “Mary, Mary, tall and scary, / How does your graveyard grow? / With buried bones and carved gray stones/ And little ghosts all in a row.” Illustrations are done in night darks and spooky purples to support the scary poem re-writes. They often tell another story beyond the re-written one, as when the dog in “Old Mother Hubbard” hilariously runs away with arm and hand bones.

Those who love scary Halloweens will love Mother Ghost.
