A perfect Halloween gift for kids, this fun read-aloud book is packed with colorful illustrations and charming rhymes featuring iconic locations and landmarks from Canada that kids, parents, and grandparents alike will love reading together.

From Windsor, Toronto, Québec, and Sydney,

The big, strong, and hairy, and terribly scary

All gathered together for one spooky night,

To seek out the living and give them a fright.
