Back of Book:
Papa Scare (a monster), Mama Scare (a mummy), and Baby Scare (a vampire) live in a haunted house where they eat finger sandwiches and alpha-bat soup. One night, they go out to walk their dog (a bloodhound, of course) to let their soup cool down. While they’re away, in walks the zombie Moldilocks, looking for food, a chair, and a bed that’s just right.
I received a copy of this picture book from Sterling Books Press in exchange for an honest review.
Holloween this upon us, since I have younger students I am always on the lookout for stories that are more silly than scary This is a perfect combination of fractured fairy tale and spooky fun. The story follows the classic Goldielocks and the Three Bears story but with a Halloween twist. While the three scares are out for a walk to let their soup cool, Moldilocks comes across their haunted house. the story follows the classic tale with a wonderful twist at the end. I love stories that promote adoption and welcoming new members into a family. The text is filled with clever puns that will make kids laugh out loud. The illustrations by David Rodriguez Lorenzo are full of expression and detail. A great story to read during the Halloween season.
