Synopsis of You Read to Me, I'll Read to You: Very Short Scary Tales to Read Together

Do you like your mind all jumpy?
Do you like your skin all bumpy?
If you do, then take a look At the stories in this book!

Mary Ann Hoberman and Michael Emberley's award-winning picture book featuring scary stories is now available in an affordable paperback edition - just in time for Halloween! With clear, color-coded type and clever illustrations, this fourth You Read to Me, I'll Read to You book uses traditional teaching techniques to invite young children to read along with the text.

With special appeal to School & Library Markets, this new edition is the second paperback in the series, the first of which was a New York Times bestseller.

Children's Literature

The third book in this successful series features stories that are just scary enough to be both interesting and funny. As in the previous books, the text appears in three colors: one for the adult reader, another for the child, and a third for both readers together. Also, each story is complete on two facing pages. The thirteen stories feature such subjects as a surprising mummy, a flying witch, a visiting dinosaur, a friendly skeleton, a scary ghost, a hungry ghoul, and some tricky zombies. Each tale ends with a variation of "You read to me. I'll read to you." The accompanying cartoon-like illustrations contribute to the humor and the action. Children will chuckle anew with each turn of the page. Although the book would be an obvious choice during the Halloween season, it could easily become a year round favorite with beginning readers.
