This Is the House That Monsters Built

This Is the House That Monsters Built

by Steve Metzger Illustrated by Jared D. Lee
This is the skeleton who nailed down the floor, That upset the werewolf who put in a door, That stopped the spider who started to crawl, That shocked the mummy who raised the wall, Inside the house that monsters built.
This Is the House That Monsters Built uses the building verse characteristic of the original nursery rhyme "This Is the House That Jack Built." A vampire, a ghost, a zombie, a mummy, and more all contribute to the spooky fun in the house that monsters built.
Young children will love the zany artwork featuring all the different monsters from bestselling illustrator Jared Lee!
