Granny Ghost will bring you a big, bad boo
A monster father softly sings his own version of a favorite lullaby to his son. A screeching owl, a vampire, an ogre, and zombies are just a few of the creatures who will come to soothe Little Monster through the night, until (when the sun comes up) it's finally time for him to go to sleep. Parents and children alike will love this humorous twist on "Hush, Little Baby."

A monster father attempts to appease his cranky child in a clever riff on the “Hush, Little Baby” lullaby. “Hush, Little Monster, don’t you howl./ Daddy’s gonna give you a.../ screeching owl./ If that owl won’t say ‘whoo whoo’.../ Granny Ghost will bring you a big, bad boo!” Twai’s monster father, with his red bean-shaped nose and Groucho Marx eyebrows, wouldn’t be out of place on Sesame Street. These husband-and-wife collaborators score some very funny moments while delivering a sweetly ghoulish story about a guardian’s love for a child (horns and all). Ages 4–6. (Aug.)
