The Scary Book - Thierry Dedieu Want To Know What Scares You?


A perfect blend of silly and scary, this oversized lift-the-flap board book shows children what's hiding inside some creepy creatures.

Snakes, bats, and spiders aren't that frightening--but just wait till you see what they're like on the inside! This delightfully ghoulish book is filled to the brim with creatures perfect for some Halloween fun. Whether it's a big bad wolf or a skeletal ghost, each monster is hiding its really horrible side beneath a foldable flap. Lift the foldout on the crab to reveal sharp teeth and tentacle tongues or pull down the flap on the spider to discover its recently caught snacks. Thierry Dedieu's colorful illustrations bring humor and lightheartedness to many spine-chilling creatures. A perfect blend of silly and scary, this big board book helps kids overcome their worries with laughter. Encourage your children to embrace their spooky side with this Halloween treat!

The 411:

Made for 3-6 year olds this book has bright color creatures that alone aren’t scary at all but what happens when you lift the foldout flap? Well, that my friends is when the fun begins. Each 2 page spread is colorfully bright and features one animal with bold to bolder text and a lift away, fold that either opens, or elongates their mouth showing us what is inside. It is made for littles so it isn’t very scary but you have to know your child. My almost 3 year old class liked the pictures and text but didn’t want the ghost or wolf opened after the first time. I love the idea and high quality that I have come to know with Prestel books. Thick board book pages makes this a book I can read with my class over and over again without worrying about the pages ripping although I believe if I were to give it to them to read alone eventually the fold outs would rip from the page.
