Monsters on the Loose!: A Seek and Solve Mystery! (Hardcover)
Halloween is about to be canceled in spooky Hallow Hills. A ghastly ghoul has stolen all the Halloween candy so there is nothing to give trick-or-treaters. Children will have to use their look-and-find skills and the process of elimination to discover the thief before midnight and save Halloween. Full color.
About the Author
Bruce Hale is passionate about inspiring reluctant readers to read. He has written or illustrated more than thirty seriously funny books for children, including the popular Chet Gecko Mysteries series and the comics-novel hybrid "Underwhere", as well as picture books like "Snoring Beauty" and "Moki and the Magic Surfboard". An actor and Fulbright Scholar in Storytelling, Hale is in demand as a speaker, having presented at conferences, universities, and schools across North America from the Maui Writers Conference to the Surrey International Writers Conference in British Columbia. His acting resume includes regional commercials, theater, and an independent film, "The Ride". His book "The Malted Falcon" was an Edgar Award finalist, and "Murder, My Tweet" won the Little D Award for Humor Writing. Hale loves jazz and sings with an a cappella group called VocalPoint in Santa Barbara.
Bruce (charming cheetah) Hale spends much of his time pouncing on pesky balls of yarn and raiding his neighbor's catnip garden. To relax, he perches himself in his living room window and basks in the rays of the sun in Santa Barbara, California.
