Book Overview

Follow los monstruos and los esqueletos to the Halloween party

Under October's "luna," full and bright, the monsters are throwing a ball in the Haunted Hall. "Las brujas" come on their broomsticks. "Los muertos" rise from their coffins to join in the fun. "Los esqueletos" rattle their bones as they dance through the door. And the scariest creatures of all aren't even there yet

This lively bilingual Halloween poem introduces young readers to a spooky array of Spanish words that will open their "ojos" to the chilling delights of the season.
