    1. This is one of those fun books to read on a windy, cold night. It reminded me a lot of Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark. The illustrations were beautiful in their own morbid way and the poems were entertaining. I particularly liked the one about The Headless Horseman, but I'm a huge fan of Sleepy Hollow, so that's why. I would recommend this book. 5 out of 5 stars.

    2. I posted a detailed review in my blog. Please check that out. I follow back on there. I thought this book was a lot of fun. I would stay clear of it though if you have a 7 year old who gets scared easily. I will for sure add it to the Halloween must reads list. Book Review: The Headless Hourseman Rides Tonight by Jack Prelutsky illustrated by Aronld Lobel – Bookworm Inkbookworminkk.wordpress/20

    3. This book consists of 12 scary poems about 12 scary creatures, with accompanying pictures for each in black and white--which help to set the mood.Great for use as Halloween poetry. It appeals to/plays on a very common emotion--fear. There are many sensory images, both sight and sound, but also touch and smell. Strong rhythms in the poems, which reinforce the scariness, but could also make them sort of melodramatic and comedic. The rhymes work well, and occur within as well as between lines. Fun [...]

    4. I got this a couple of years ago to have something creepy and spooky for Halloween, but not too scary. Actually, the poems are a little scary, and I found out later that one of my kids was kept up by one called, "The Zombie."These poems deserve 4 stars for the really fun language and imagery. Not all of the poems are up at the same level, but most of them were great for vivid vocabulary and enjoyable cadence for reading aloud. I just read it again today to my six year old daughter. She declared, [...]

    5. I enjoyed this as much as the first book. All the poems are very imaginative, creepy and detailed. I think Jack Prelutsky is quite gifted at writing poetry and this book definitely shows it. Each poem manages to wrap its words around your mind, making you see the story it's telling. It's a wonderfully creepy book of poetry.

    6. This book used to creep me out beyond belief, especially the Kraken and Banshee illustrations. I used to take it down from the shelf above my bed and stare into the eyes of the Elves late at night to freak myself out.

    7. Not as good as Nightmares: Poems to Trouble Your Sleep to stand on its own, but would be a nice companion to Nightmares if given as a gift.

    8. Hands down, my favorite JP book so far. Incredibly creepy poems partnered with equally creepy illustrations. Just a hands down winner for books to creep out the kids without going overboard.

    9. Arnold Lobel is adept as always. I didn't like the choppy verse at all. I was stumbling all over the place, and since I was lying in bed at the time, that took some doing.

    10. I heard this book has 22? SAT words in the first poem so I was going to buy it and it was gifted to me! I love Zombie. Prelutsky proved himself as a wordsmith! He and Stevenson are heroes!
