Synopsis

How much trouble could three harmless little ghosties get into in one night? Plenty! These silly spirits love boasting to each other about who is the scariest. Ghouls, witches, and even a neighborhood ogre all find themselves at the mercy of these naughty ghosties, who spook them with a "woooo, woooo, woooo, BOOOO!" But when the ghosties decide to scare some boys and girls for a change, who will get the biggest fright of all?
    This bouncing, rhyming tale by Pippa Goodhart is just the antidote for bedtime jitters and Anna-Laura Cantone's perfectly spooky illustrations will inspire nothing but giggles. Look inside--if you dare!
