The bones of Fred Mcfee

Book Cover
Average Rating
Pub. Date:
In this rhythmic story, an unsuspecting brother and sister bring a toy skeleton home from the harvest fair. They name it Fred McFee and hang it from a sycamore tree. Soon, eerie things begin to happen: The rooster disappears. The hens won't lay. Most terrifying of all, Fred's bones dance clickety-clack as night winds howl. And then on Halloween night, Fred McFee vanishes! Eve Bunting's gleefully ghoulish tale is sure to become a Halloween classic.
