The story here was probably great, but I just couldn’t get over the narrator’s voices. I understand that they are supposed to be monsters, but it is also supposed to be a bedtime book. Couldn’t it have been toned down to make it less creepy? The monsters are supposed to be friendly and helpful, but the narrator makes them come across as scary.
I have no idea who put this together, but it is supposed “proof” that there are vampires in the United States. I’m not so sure about this, but it’s something to consider anyway.
There are other places that black cats love to hide. Under the bed. In the pile of laundry. Anywhere dark.
Just be sure to keep them indoors this Halloween. You never know what someone might try to do to an innocent black cat.
