Another Halloween book

Two years ago, I picked up a copy of Monster Goose. It turned out to be too scary to be that year's new Halloween book. This year the kid's love it. The little rhymes border on the disgusting, and the art hovers between funny and creepy. Here is what is probably the most outre of the poems:

Cannibal Horner
Sat in the corner
Eating a people potpie
He bit his own thumb
And cried "Oh, yum, yum.
A tasty young morsel am I"

If you want to serve up something a little different this Halloween, this book is a good choice.
