Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: When a fall causes Skelly B. Skeleton to come apart on Halloween, his animal friends try to put him back together based on their own bodies.

  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2018 July #1
    When a mishap leaves Skelly the skeleton just a random scattering of bones, a succession of passersby offer to put him back together. First, he asks a snake to give him a hand, but being snake-shaped isn't right. Similarly disappointed to be reassembled as an ant and then a chicken, he moans, "I'm like Humpty Dumpty." But then along comes a trio of costumed children, and in next to no time, Skelly is again himself. Off he goes with his new friends shouting the traditional "Trick or treat, smell our feet, give us something good to eat!" Richmond sets these cartoon goings-on in misty, moonlit surroundings, but depicts Skelly in a nonscary way, even when properly put together as a sketchy assortment of separated bones topped by a fleshed-in skull with glowing green eyes, eyebrows, and a toothless, usually smiling, mouth. Skelly may not be the brightest bulb in the chandelier, but he's a true object lesson in just being oneself. No bones about it, the holiday-themed hilarity will leave young audiences chortling. Grades K-2. Copyright 2018 Booklist Reviews.
