"It's Halloween" and five monsters are brewing a savory Halloween stew. Each monster adds something special to the mixture -- a juicy frog, a bat, a hairy spider. But when the littlest monster gets too curious and tips over the pot, the stew runs away! Little Moe is inconsolable (and "very" hungry!) until a knock on the door brings an unexpected guest -- and a big Halloween surprise. With rollicking rhyme and glowing watercolors, Pamela Jane and Vera Rosenberry serve up a tasty holiday treat for readers of all ages.

In this cute holiday rhyming story, four monsters gleefully contribute these morsels—still alive, by the way, and squirming in their garbage-can cooking pot—to what they expect will be a grand and festive treat.
