Black and Bittern was Night

blackandbitternwasnightWritten by Robert Heidbreder, Illustrated by John Martz


The spooky SKUL-A-MUG-MUGS have come to town and the grownups call off trick-or-treating. No fair! The kids need to figure out a way to get rid of the spooks and save Halloween. This book is written in verse with made-up words. I think students will like the book for its pictures, but the made-up words may frustrate readers. I tried to read the story aloud and couldn’t do it.
