Book Description

Aug. 15 2002
First stop, off we pop to a craggy mountaintop. Spooky castle, creaky floor -- who is opening the door?

Is it a lurking, smirking Vampire? Or a howling, growling Werewolf? One by one, a ghoulish gang climbs onto this super jet-fueled broomstick for a frightfully fun flight on Halloween night.

Want to hop aboard? There might be room for just one more. But beware -- Laura Krauss Melmed's cumulative rhyming story and Henry Cole's hilarious illustrations will take you on the ride of your life!

Product Details

Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

En route to "your house," a mischievous witch stops at creepy locales to pick up ghosts and mummies: "Hop aboard, there's always room/ for a howling, growling Werewolf,/ and a lurking, smirking Vampire/ to ride this broom." Melmed (The Rainbabies) provides serviceable cumulative rhymes, while Cole (Moosetache) designs standard-issue ghouls and prankish labels for specimen jars and headstones ("Claire Voyant, Sandy Beech [`she was all washed up']"). Last year's genial Room on the Broom, by Julia Donaldson and Alex Scheffler, offers a bouncier ride. Ages 3-8.--"). Last year's genial Room on the Broom, by Julia Donaldson and Alex Scheffler, offers a bouncier ride. Ages 3-8.

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 1-It's time for a witch's Fright Night Flight. "With hat and cat, away I zoom/upon my super jet-fueled broom." The first stop is a spooky castle with a creaky floor inhabited by a "lurking, smirking Vampire" who joins the party. They fly off to a number of places-the cemetery, the "House of Dread," and elsewhere-picking up other spooky characters along the way. When the frightful creatures reach their destination, they warn readers that they'll soon end up at "-your house (we know the street) and- ring- your- doorbell- TRICK OR TREAT!" The rhyming text is full of fun. The full-spread illustrations are rich with color and amusing detail, and the characters are drawn in a nonthreatening cartoon style that will not scare young children. A fine choice for Halloween storytimes.

5.0 out of 5 stars How Spooky-Proof Is Your Kid? Oct. 22 2003
By A Customer
Format:Library Binding
Of course some kids will find this scary, but then some kids find dinosaurs, clowns, and visits to the doctor scary. My almost four-year-old, who lives and breathes "spooky guys" the way some kids live and breathe dinosaurs, just adores this book. The lesson? Know your kid, and maybe check it out at the library before deciding to add it to your collection. For the right kid, this is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED with a Spooky Seal of Approval.

3.0 out of 5 stars Scarier for Adults Than Kids Oct. 31 2003
Format:Library Binding
I bought this book from a catalog thinking it's just the seasonal book I was looking for to read to my 2 and 5 year old children. My 5 year old likes to read it aloud to me complete with spooky inflections on (or as he reads it) "Boo-Boo-Booooooogity Ghost". My two year old likes to repeat that phrase as she is increasing her verbal skills. However, I think the book is scary. I have to agree with the reviewer who pointed out the bit about the crew coming to your street at the end. That *is* frightening - to me as an adult and parent with an attendent set of fears about raising my children well and keeping them safe. My children, though, don't have a problem with the idea of a bunch of supernatural creatures tracking them to their home - or stalking them for that matter.

This fun Halloween book is perfect for this time of year. I completely disagree... I read this book with my children who thoroughly enjoyed it. The rhymes and illustrations make the book lighthearted and fun. I would definitely recommend Fright Night Flight!!!
