"An excellent read for little ones learning about the holiday as well as those who can't wait for Halloween to arrive." -- Kirkus Reviews
The ever-intrepid Bizzy Bear is visiting a super-spooky Halloween house. As he climbs the rickety stairs and walks the cobwebby corridors, all sorts of creepy characters appear from doors and hidey-holes. Bizzy remains undaunted -- but where could he be going and what will he find there? Bizzy's latest adventure makes for a splendidly seasonal new addition to this popular series, which has sold more than a million copies worldwide.
Tabs, sliders, and a rotating wheel activate surprises as Bizzy Bear explores a benevolently haunted house in this playful addition to Davies's long-running series. Writing in rhymes with a "Pat-a-cake" cadence ("Bizzy Bear, Bizzy Bear, creaky stair./ Bizzy Bear, Bizzy Bear, what's that there?"), Davies sends Bizzy Bear through cobwebbed rooms up to a party in the attic, accompanied by his host, a dog dressed as a vampire (but where is his reflection in the hallway mirror?). The interactive elements set up several fun peekaboo moments--with an emphasis on the boo--as a mummy elephant peeks from behind a door that slides open and a frog-as-ghost leaps out from behind a chair.
