Past the graveyard,
hear the howl
of werewolf loggers
on the prowl.

In this spooky, rhyming romp, creatures of all types work together to build a haunted house for a vampire family in need of a home. From mummies to Cyclops to the skeleton crew, they're all working hard to get the job done. But they'd better hurry, because the house needs to be finished before the sun comes up. It's a good thing their foreman, Frankenstein, is here to keep everyone in check. Will they get it done in time?

Review quote

"Humorously lively, energetic illustrations feature numerous busy, multicolored monsters and mounds of dirt; the palette highlights mostly dark shades (this is a nighttime enterprise, after all), but a full moon lights the proceedings well enough to illuminate the monsters' comical, frantic expressions; a round yellow sun at the book's conclusion brings the evening's proceedings to a happy finish. Entertaining and enjoyable for building and critter lovers." --Kirkus Reviews

"This fun and friendly book will be a hit at Halloween storytimes or with monster-loving children who don't necessarily go in for frights." --Booklist

"A suggested first purchase, this is a richly colorful and humorous fantasy, perfect for alert and detail-oriented young readers." --School Library Journal
