""With rich language and a delightfully dark nighttime palette, this pleasing rhyme begs to be acted out or performed with puppets. The illustrations are appropriately ghoulish.""
"--"BookPage""

Armstrong-Ellis stages a light Halloween countdown starring 10 monsters who leave the story one at a time: “Ten creepy monsters met ’neath a gnarled pine./ One blew away, and then there were nine.” The motley group includes a vampire resembling Bela Lugosi’s Dracula, a zombie that loses its foot, and an aquatic monster that falls in love with a human in a rowboat. Generously detailed acrylics provide a touch of nefarious charm, while a tender surprise ending should gratify trick-or-treaters. Ages 4–8. (Oct.)
