Call #:JP BAUER
by Marion Dane Bauer
“If you take your trick-or-treat sack and venture into the dark woods on Halloween night, you’ll find cat bones, rat bones, and bat bones—and all are looking at YOU!
“Take care! Beware! Despair!” the bone creatures cry. “You can bet you’ve just met your worst nightmare!” What will you do? Cry? Sigh? NO! Because you’re too tough / to worry about stuff / like the rattle / and prattle / of bones!
Told in unmetered rhymed verse, this Halloween adventure is a real treat.”

Mammoth and Me
Call #:JP HALL
by Algy Craig Hall
“When a BIG (but oh-so-cuddly) mammoth knocks on the door of one small boy, it’s the beginning of a beautiful–and funny–friendship. Though the boy loves his new pet immediately, the mammoth is just too huge for his home, the park, and the town. But the friendly creature will soon prove to everyone that he is about to become the town’s hero. A heartwarming and gentle tale of learning to be friends no matter what differences there may be.”
