It’s Halloween and you’re out for the night,
Not quite realizing you’re in for a fright.
The candy creepers have come to town,
And they will gobble your candy down.
The candy creepers are masters of disguise, but boy are they in for a big surprise.
It's Halloween night and a little boy dressed as Dracula has ventured out on his quest to collect candy. Suddenly, he gets the eerie feeling that he's not alone. Afraid that sneaky Creepers are after his loot he makes a break for home and hides safely inside. But, is his candy really safe?
Told in ghostly rhyme, Night of the Candy Creepers is a perfect hair-raising tale for little readers and parents and children will cackle with delight when the identities' of the Creepers are revealed, although some parents (myself included) will identify with the candy thieves and feel a bit guilty. My favorite part is when the little boy stomps off with his candy in hand..."They hand your candy back, but that's no fun at all... 'Cause now you know the Creepers live just two steps down the hall."
This is such a fun tantalizing Halloween tale for children. The illustrations are colorfully creepy and give the story a playfully haunting feel.
I found Night of the Candy Creepers to be a thrilling fight night tale and highly recommend picking up a copy. Available from KiteReaders at Amazon.com.
