Past the graveyard,
hear the howl
of werewolf loggers
on the prowl.
In this spooky, rhyming romp, creatures of all types work together to build a haunted house for a vampire family in need of a home. From mummies to Cyclops to the skeleton crew, they’re all working hard to get the job done. But they’d better hurry, because the house needs to be finished before the sun comes up. It’s a good thing their foreman, Frankenstein, is here to keep everyone in check. Will they get it done in time?
Frank Tupta grew up in a haunted house in Cleveland, Ohio. His favorite holiday is Halloween. He currently lives in Peninsula, Ohio (a haunted town), surrounded by the Cuyahoga Valley National Park with his wife, children’s book author and illustrator Lindsay Ward; their children; and Sally, a rambunctious pit-bull/Lab mix. How to Build a Haunted House is his debut picture book. In addition to writing for children, he also works on www.critterlit.com, a website offering critiques and advice to up-and-coming authors and illustrators.
