This book is a fun Halloween book which can be sung to the tune of “The Ants Go Marching One By One.” Although, the version of that song that I know has a few differences from the text of this book. Which could just be due to the different variations of the song. However, I kept finding myself singing the song I knew and changing the “Hurrah! Hurrah!” and the “Boom! Boom! Boom!” parts to fit the tune I knew. But other than that there are different numbers of Halloween monsters that are causing havoc all over an elementary school. Principals go running, school nurses faint, janitors get scared and whatnot. And kids will love it. I think this is one book that they will want to be sung over and over again and perhaps not just when it is Halloween.

What to do after reading this book:
Go trick-or-treating.
Dress up in your Halloween costume.
See if you can scare someone.
Say hello to all the friendly staff at school.
Pretend you are a monster of some sort.
