View All Available Formats & Editions


From one to ten—and down again to one. And every number will make you shiver and shake. (Well, sometimes you will be shaking with laughter, but no matter.)

Start counting with One Tall Scarecrow. Go on to Two Lumpy Toads. How long will it take you to learn all these creepy couplets by heart? Not much longer than it will take you to count to ten and down again to one!

On you mark—get set—GO!What do lumpy toads, hooting owls, furry bats, skinny witches, ghastly ghosts, yowling cats, and brave mice have in common? They all parade through the spine-tingling pages of Charlotte Huck's imaginative countdown and revel in an especially eerie night! But the mice get the last Boo (or maybe young readers do) in this enchanting book that goes from one to ten and back again, and dazzles with its ticklish scratchboard pictures. A positively creepy-crawly read-aloud for Halloween, storytime, and anytime!

A Halloween countdown starts off with one scarecrow and counts up to 10 mice. When the mice scare the others they all run back and leave the scarecrow all alone. This is a great book to read for halloween. This would also be a great book for students learning how to count because you count forward and backward.

We bought this book last Halloween and then put it away with the decorations. When we brought it out this year, our 3 year old wouldn't let us put it down. The drawings are first rate. Creepy enough for our 6 year old to enjoy, yet not too spooky for the 3 year old. A must!
