Does your child fear the creatures of night? Well, here’s a little girl who is up for a boogeyman fight! This rip-roaring fun story will transform any child who is spooked by monsters in the closet or under the bed into rulers of their rooms. After taking a few lessons from little LeAnne, they will never fear that nasty boogeyman again.
"Leanne hides under her covers at night. Anxiously awaiting a Boogeyman fight." But, when the Boogeyman finally comes to give Leanne a scare, he is in for a spine-chilling surprise. Leanne springs in to action, attacking the Boogeyman with a bat and a special concoction of Magical Monster Mist she brewed just for the occasion. With the Boogeyman under her spell, Leanne performs some frightening tricks of her own. Will Leanne defeat the Boogeyman forever?
The illustrations by Rob Peters are worth howling about and the Magical Monster Mist is a brilliant idea (recipe included). Definitely something I'll have to make for my teenagers after they watch scary movies with their friends.
Bye Bye, Boogeyman! is a magical make-believe that is sure to be a Halloween favorite with children as well as parents. I highly recommend picking up a copy. Available from KiteReaders at Amazon.com.
