I received The Scary Book by Thierry Dedieu for this review/feature. Opinions expressed are my own.
The Scary Book by Thierry Dedieu (ISBN: 9783791374642; Hardcover $12.95; Ages 3+) is an oversized lift-the-flap board book that shows children what’s hiding inside some creepy creatures. This is the PERFECT toddler/preschool book to read this Halloween season!
A perfect blend of silly and scary, this oversized lift-the-flap board book shows children what’s hiding inside some creepy creatures.
Snakes, bats, and spiders aren’t that frightening–but just wait till you see what they’re like on the inside! This delightfully ghoulish book is filled to the brim with creatures perfect for some Halloween fun. Whether it’s a big bad wolf or a skeletal ghost, each monster is hiding its really horrible side beneath a foldable flap. Lift the foldout on the crab to reveal sharp teeth and tentacle tongues or pull down the flap on the spider to discover its recently caught snacks. Thierry Dedieu’s colorful illustrations bring humor and lightheartedness to many spine-chilling creatures. A perfect blend of silly and scary, this big board book helps kids overcome their worries with laughter. Encourage your children to embrace their spooky side with this Halloween treat!
Your child gets to lift the foldable flap to reveal what is scary underneath!

This book is super
cute “scary” for little ones! I quickly added this title to our Halloween book collection and my 3 year old daughter selects this one every night because she LOVES to lift the flaps and every single time she giggles when the picture is revealed underneath. To completely brag I am fairly awesome at making the appropriate sounds/voice inflections for each page so I can see why she likes it so much! This really is the PERFECT Halloween board book title to read during October!
