Look for this at Amazon / BD
This is a really playful book. Loved it! From the beginning it keeps building the scary moment. Look for this title because you need to have your own experience, because I won't tell.
About They're Coming (From goodreads):
They're Coming! is a humorously creepy picture book from author/illustrator Timothy Young.
It shows monsters and ghouls and various creatures from all over. Why are they coming?
You'll have to read the book to find out.
Refreshing! While I was reading this on my tablet, my 5 year old was sitting beside me. As the story progressed we were expecting something. I was expecting something terrible to happen in a town or something. I don't want to offer spoilers because this storybook although simple, it is good. You have to read this storybook and see what happens!
I will get this for my daughter. She said to me: “Mom that is pretty." And it is true; the illustrations created by Young go incredibly well with the story. Sure, the illustrations are digital, but I like them for their unusualness. The creatures look scary but at the same time nice. Through all the illustrations fog is predominant, which I liked for it added to the atmosphere.
Recommend this storybook for kids at Pre-K level & up.
