On a windy Halloween night, as a little boy makes his way home after trick-or-treating, he hears a voice:
GÇ£Cracklety-clack, bones in a sack. They could be yoursGÇöif you look back.GÇ¥ As his heart flip-flops with fear, the boy dashes through woods and fields that seem full of haunting shapesGÇöowls, ghosts, skeletons, and more. The detailed illustrations are packed with visual tricks for children to discover. Are those skeletons or cornstalks? Ghostly hands or tree branches? The playful tone of the text makes this a perfect, not-too-scary read-aloud, with an enjoyable surprise ending.
