A lift-the-flap book for grandmas and grandsons to have a ghoulishly fun time!
Meritxell Martí and Xavier Salomó have created a not-too-spooky lift-the-flap book that promises hours of entertainment for the little ones.
This title shares the memorable story of a grandson visiting her granny to spend a very special evening together.
To his surprise, when the kid arrives in the old Victorian style house, there is note for him: a mouth-watering snack awaits in the kitchen. After having a delicious eye-popping chocolate smoothy, the young boy chases the kitten room by room until dusk.
By the time the full-moon is coming, the big date approaches and so does the a punchy dénouement that gives a unique twist on the hounted house cliché.
Readers will love exploring the rooms, guessing what is beneath each flap and finding details and surprises hidden on every page. Boo!
A novelty book for grandmas and grandsons to read together. That’s always a treat!
