This humorous and interactive lift-the-flap book tells the rhyming story of the creepy denizens and spooky goings-on inside a haunted house. Children can lift the flaps to discover new text and hidden images, as if they are exploring the world in which the story unfolds. This lift-the-flap narrative is an ideal way for young children to practise their literacy and hand-eye coordination skills.
