I have very fond memories of picking up this story from the book corner of my classroom when I was the same age as the Little Bookworms. I was surprised by how few of the Little Bookworms had come across this book before.
The Little Bookworms were enthralled from the moment they heard the memorable description of the story’s setting. They loved joining in with the “dark dark” descriptions and wanted to go on an adventure through the “dark dark town” with the friendly skeletons.
There were laughs all around when the skeleton dog fell apart. The other skeletons try to put him back together, but noises from the dog show that something isn’t quite right.
Even though the skeletons are looking for someone to scare, they are friendly really and actually end up giving themselves a scare! As well as being humorous, this story also created brilliant scientific discussions. An all round fantastic story, especially since it comes in a big book version!
