This is how the story begins.
On a dark dark hill
there was a dark dark town.
In the dark dark town
there was a dark dark street . . .
Janet and Allan’s frightfully funny Hallowe’en classic tells the story of three skeletons – a big skeleton, a little skeleton and a dog skeleton – who venture out of their cellar one night to find someone to scare, only to find that everyone is in bed. Who will they scare now?!
In the first ever Funnybones book, we are introduced to the wonderful humour and fun of the much-loved series. The Funnybones books are a must for children just starting to learn to read – these funny skeletons are definitely not the scary sort!
Allan Ahlberg has published over 100 children’s books and with his late wife Janet, created many award-winning children’s picture books.
The Ahlbergs’ books are nursery bookshelf standards and have been the recipient of worldwide acclaim and awards, including the Kate Greenaway Medal.
