Product Description

A much-loved classic by Janet and Allan Ahlberg. These cheeky skeletons really want to scare someone! BOO! In the dark dark cellar of a dark dark house live a big skeleton, a little skeleton and a dog skeleton. One dark dark night, the skeletons sneak out on a mission to frighten someone! But – uh-oh. Everybody is in bed. They’ll just have to scare each other. But soon they find some others who want to play: the skeleton animals in the zoo!

  • A classic that has delighted readers for over 25 years
  • Supports early reading with repetition of simple words
  • Witty, reassuring story which soothes fear of the dark
  • From a best-loved, Greenaway Medal-winning team
