Midnight Fright


Midnight Fright

It's 1 o'clock on Halloween Day, and all the children have dressed in their Halloween costumes and gathered in the town center.

Each hour something exciting happens and the countdown continues all the way to midnight.

A die-cut hole in the cover reveals a large pretend clock with hands that can be moved to match the specific hour on the page. We read this book around Halloween to build on your children's excitement over the upcoming holiday.
