Synopsis

On the night before Christmas at the old haunted house, not a creature is stirring, until . . . "Aroo-roo!" Someone steps on the werewolf and wakes him, but who? He's blaming the manticore, who's blaming the cat, who's blaming the zombie, who points to the bat. Help! Luckily, dear Santa Mouse knows the perfect solution to calming and quieting all this Christmas confusion.
Judy Sierra and Will Hillenbrand, the ingeniously wicked team behind The House That Drac Built, have turned a holiday classic into howling, rollicking fun!
