First published in 1978, this perfectly spooky picture book with illustrations by beloved and award-winning Tomie dePaola compiles four spine-tingling tales as told by little monsters.
One dark night three little things—an imp, a goblin, and a scalawag—get together to tell the scariest stories they can think of. They are brash and brave as they argue over who should go next, and each one tries to make his story the scariest. When they finish, they realize someone was listening…and that may be the scariest thing of all.
Tomie dePaola (1934–2020) was the beloved author and/or illustrator of more than 270 books for young readers, including the children’s classic, Strega Nona. He was the recipient of the Newbery Honor, Caldecott Honor, and the 2011 Children’s Literature Legacy Award for “significant and lasting contribution to children’s literature.” A native of Connecticut, Mr. dePaola studied at the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, New York, and spent much of his life in New London, New Hampshire.
