KIRKUS REVIEW

A trip through a scary haunted house where ghosts and witches loom, a mummy with a winking eye lies on a bed, a skeleton bunts from a closet, and a vampire sleeps in the bathtub--all described in engaging rhyme: "The roof space is creeping and crawling with things,/Things that have horns and raggedy wings." There are just two observers, indicated only by an occasional glimpse of a hand or a couple of pairs of shoes--until the end, when they turn out to belong to a large male person, who appears to be shaken by his experience, and a small female person, who is eager to go back into this cleverly rigged "Halloween House." Meddaugh's vigorous illustrations add a lot to the fun. A satisfying addition to the Halloween repertoire.
