About This Book
In this cumulative tale that begins on "One dark and stormy night," ghost begins to wail. Then candle flickers. Floor creaks. Owl hoots. And Wind begins to blow . . . and blow . . . and BLOW. . . .
"The mounting cadence will be splendid aloud; kids will begin to chime in on the first reading. Root's dark, swirling paintings of the thoroughly haunted house, lit with a ghostly glow, are right in the proper spirit." — Kirkus Reviews
"Deep, dark pictures of a windy, cloudy, spooky night provide the appropriate atmosphere for this tantalizingly told story-poem about a brother and sister who are sent out at night to fetch a pail of milk . . . A splendid selection for Halloween". — BooklistFull color.
