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." -Publishers Weekly "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." -Booklist "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." -BookPage "A perfect Halloween read-aloud but a great way to relieve malaise on any day, this picture book also helps young readers learn to count as the monsters fall by the wayside in gruesome fashion." -Reading Today Online "Author/artist Carey F. Armstrong-Ellis clearly had fun crafting this silly, lighthearted Halloween tale of monsters who disappear..." -The Seattle Times "Carey F. Armstrong-Ellis delivers a delightful rhyming lesson in subtraction." -USA Today
