The rhymes are clever and the intrigue mounts with verses like this one about the werewolf: "Eight creepy monsters gazed up at heaven,/ One stopped to howl, and then there were seven." Even though the story line is simple, there's a lot of action and comedy on the page, with distinctive characters doing a combination of mundane and scary stuff. And Carey F. Armstrong-Ellis' illustrations are exceptional, with many fun details that grown-ups will pick up on, like the vampire carrying a Bates Motel towel to the beach for a swim, an allusion to the classic film Psycho.
