Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
Ten creepy monsters met 'neath a gnarled pine.
One blew away,
And then there were nine.
And so the countdown begins . . . A mummy, a witch, a ghost, a werewolf, a vampire, and others all gather, but one by one their crowd diminishes. At last there is only one creepy monster left. But what kind of monster is it?
Squeals of laughter are sure to accompany the reading of this book from bestselling illustrator Carey Armstrong-Ellis, as ten creepy monsters set out for fun.
Praise for Ten Creepy Monsters
"Armstrong-Ellis injects just the right amount of humor into her portrayals of the ghoulish bunch, keeping the tone appropriately light."
- Kirkus Reviews
"Generously detailed acrylics provide a touch of nefarious charm, while a tender surprise ending should gratify trick-or-treaters."

"Fun for Halloween or for counting anytime."
- School Library Journal
"Armstrong-Ellis' textured images, full of spooky spirit and clever detail, add to the fun. A happy Halloween outing."
"With rich language and a delightfully dark nighttime palette, this pleasing rhyme begs to be acted out or performed with puppets. The illustrations are appropriately ghoulish."
