From Apparitions to Zombies, Ryan Heshka's ABC Spookshow brings together weird words and creepy characters to create one devilishly entertaining alphabet book.
A Witch stirs her caldron, casting evil spells, while a pig moans in pain from too much Yucky candy. A Quagmire monster rises from the dead while an Unlucky black cat lies squashed and still, the last of its nine lives gone. With eerie, pop-art illustrations reminiscent of old comics and monster movies, this book is a must-have for readers young and old who relish the uncanny and macabre.
