Let your child hone his or her counting skills as you read this book aloud. Ghost is hosting a Halloween party for all of his friends and he's been very busy, but now it's time to greet his guests. With a pair of spooky skeletons, a trio of gruesome goblins, and an assortment of werewolves, vampires, ghastly ghouls, mean monsters, witches and mummies, it looks like it's going to be quite a party.

But when ten cute children, sunny and sweet, knock on the door chanting 'Trick or Treat!', Ghost's guests all quickly depart. Why is this gruesome gang so anxious to flee? They quake and quiver, shake and shiver because, alas, they're deathly afraid of the happy youngsters. Only Ghost is left to scare the kids away with a hearty 'BOO!', which seems to do the trick!

Counting the guests as they arrive and then rapidly leave the haunted mansion is part of the fun of this special Halloween picture book.
