it was in the middle of the late hours. |twelve fifty-nine to be precise.|The winds howled outside,|and the old house creaked-- (from the first line)
The antics of a perky prankster in pajamas is a feast of words and pictures. With sly wordplay, atmospheric illustrations, and a baker's dozen of spooky characters, this picture book reminds readers that more fun than fright can be had from things that bump in the night. Full color.
From the Publisher:
Filled with frightfully zany characters, this entertaining story follows a very normal girl from a slightly normal house where a strange clock counts to thirteen.As a mysterious old clock strikes thirteen, monsters and ghouls appear looking for a snack and a little mischief at the expense of the small girl who lives down the hall.
This spooky Halloweenesque counting picture book follows the terrific chaos of the clanging and the creatures that erupt when a funky clock hits 13 in a little girl's creepy house. The crazy bonging brings out strange monsters, from leathery, winged creatures to a simple spider--more and more with each strike of the clock. However, they are all in for a big shock when they try to spook a snoozing little girl. Accompanied by inventive, sophisticated black charcoal drawings, occasionally green-tinged, with a great deal of topographical variety that heightens the playful, spooky feeling of the story.


Kirkus Reviews
"[An] entertaining, deliciously quirky chronicle...Stimson's stylized pencil illustrations, mostly black-and-white but tinged with mildew-green, recall Lane Smith's work...Innovative designs and varied font sizes add to the fun of this offbeat offering." 10/01/2005

Publishers Weekly
"[P]lenty of typographical pyrotechnics--crooked typesetting, large and small fonts, and occasional hand-lettering--add visual punch. Stimson's free-associating free-verse and bold use of an eclectic, alliterative vocabulary...make this a fine read-aloud choice...." 10/10/2005
