The Bones of Fred Mcfee
In this rhythmic story, an unsuspecting brother and sister bring a toy skeleton home from the harvest fair. They name it Fred McFee and hang it from a sycamore tree. Soon, eerie things begin to happen: The rooster disappears. The hens won't lay. Most terrifying of all, Fred's bones dance clickety-clack as night winds howl. And then on Halloween night, Fred McFee vanishes!
Eve Bunting's gleefully ghoulish tale is sure to become a Halloween classic.

Review: The Bones of Fred McFeeUser Review - Marissa Garcia - Goodreads
Oooh. What a spooky little book from the revered Eve Bunting. I like the premise of Fred McFee being made of plastic, but the very real dip into actual horror the ending has. A good balance for young readers without getting too scary. Would fare well during storytime. Read full review

Bill read this to Max. Max thought it was okay but it was not lurid enough for him. Using the spooky voice helped. Read full review
