On a Windy Night

This is a book about facing fears–a great read-aloud all year.


A boy walking home from trick-or-treating hears a voice that grows louder as he runs faster–"Cracklety-clack, bones in a sack. They could be yours–if you look back." He thinks he sees dancing skeletons, a dead head, and a hairy monster, but what are they really?


"There's enough Halloween fright to satisfy adventurous young readers, and a comforting ending for those with jangled nerves." —Publishers Weekly


"For preschoolers, this book will likely be the source of repeated read-alouds filled with spine-tingling squeals of fright and delight."–BookPage


"A rhythmic, atmospheric read-aloud."–School Library Journal
