Title: Monster Town
Author/Illustrators: Ryan Heshka

Synopsis: As soon as the sun sets on Monster Town, creatures of all kinds go to work. So hop on the Ghoul Bus and see for yourself. But be warned, it can be a bit scary out there!
Why you should read it: I like how picture books give young readers a chance to visit other worlds and MONSTER TOWN is no different. Mr. Heshka provides a wonderful play on words as we travel through the streets after dark to see how the other side lives. Full of familiar faces, everyone will smile to discover what their favorite Halloween characters actually do whenever they aren't out trick or treating!
