I enjoyed reading this novel because of its utilization of humor to engage readers and its fun, creative story line. The author integrated humor throughout the rhymes and illustrations that went along with the poetry in this story. The author's comedy was included seamlessly throughout, making the poetry fun to read and keeping engaged the entire time. One of the comical moments was when the author described two ghosts as, "Although they danced politely, their friends were very rude- in fact, two ghosts took off their sheets and flew completely nude." The plot of this book instantly made it a fun read and the plot progression was executed in a successful and thrilling way. The author describes how the main character's Halloween party is crashed by actual monsters, revealing new creatures and the havoc they wreak as the story progresses, which keeps the readers excited to keep reading. The excitement builds initially when an Ogre appears warning him that at his party there will be "those you did not invite" and then suddenly the boy "heard a rattle, then a clack" when the first unwanted guests, skeletons, came running in the door. This novel expresses to readers to stand up for yourself and for what is right, despite what people are doing around you through a playful story line. ( )

The E-book version, found at childrenlibrary.org, is nicely laid out so that while reading on screen, the reader is able to see both pages of the book. The option to zoom in and out of the text is very helpful for the reader. Great illustrations, which appeal to readers because of the humourous aspect.

On Halloween night, a child's party is visited by real ghosts and goblins. Unfortunately, because everyone is in a mask and costume, no one knows who the real creatures are—until some of the real ghosts and goblins begin to show off for each other. The host and his friends ultimately learn how to deal with negative, destructive behavior and take responsibility for their situation.
