Will Allen and the Great Monster Detective ($3.62) http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/B0057XK230/hpb2-20/ASIN/B0057XK230 The book was very interesting. - I read this book to my four year old son. - My grandson has loved reading the books and is enjoying reading not just one time but repeatedly reading them again.
Fungus the Bogeyman by Raymond Briggs. Most people know Raymond Briggs (even if they don't know they know him) for The Snowman, a wonderful children's book to be sure, but it is unusual for his work in that it's a traditional picture book, where most of his books are graphic novels or comics. This book I read as a kid, along with Father Christmas and Ug: Boy Genius of the Stone Age.
