Four Silly Skeletons

Publisher: Bloomsbury Children’s Books

This bold rhyming picture book features four accident-prone skeletons: Fred, Sid, Belle and Bill, who live in a house at the top of a hill. Luckily for them, sensible Auntie June lives at the bottom, and is always on hand to pick up the pieces when things go wrong.

When one night they hear some toe-tapping music, the careless skeletons dance out of the door - whirling, twirling and jiving into the darkness. However, they do not heed Auntie June's warning to take a light with them, and shimmy their way towards the edge of a cliff…

Appealing illustrations accompany this light-hearted tale, complete with skelly spiders, mice, bats and robots. Children will giggle at the various mishaps of the silly skeletons, from overflowing baths to banana-skin slip-ups. An ideal book to share with little ones at Halloween.
