Product Description

A big skeleton, a little skeleton and a dog skeleton live in the dark cellar of a dark house on a dark hill. The skeletons venture out one dark night to find someone to scare, but – oh no! Everybody is in bed! Luckily, they can always amuse themselves by scaring each other… until they find some others who want to play: the skeleton animals in the zoo! A deliciously spooky classic from the much-loved team of Janet and Allan Ahlberg.

Author/Illustrator

Allan Ahlberg

7079 allan ahlberg 206756

Allan has been delighting children of all ages for more than thirty years. Classic characters like Burglar Bill and The Jolly Postman have become firm favourites with a generation of children who are now reading them to their own offspring. Innovative, funny and moving, his work encompasses storybooks, picture books, easy readers, joke books and novels as well as poems.

Many of his books were collaborations with his wife, Janet, an illustrator, and they quickly became one of Britain’s leading author/illustrator teams.

Influenced by comics and cartoons, their perfect partnership went on to produce masterpieces including Peepo!, Each Peach Pear Plum and The Baby’s Catalogue.

Janet sadly died in 1994, but Allan has gone on to work with other illustrators and is still producing lots of new books.
