Inside a House That Is Haunted: A Rebus Read-Along Story by Alyssa Satin Capucilli, Tedd Arnold (Illustrator)
Wonderful pictures engage pre-readers to read along with you or by themselves. The predictable text includes rebus picture clues. A child can easily recall the sequence of events and proudly recite them as the story progresses. The story is a cumulative rhyme in which a monster, a spider, a mummy, bats, a ghost and a cat get woken up and startle each other. The monster stomps down the hall to answer the door and greets a smaller version of himself. When the trick or treater removes his mask, the real monsters flee in fright.
