If you are going camping this summer or on a road trip, I highly recommend Sipping Spiders Through a Straw Campfire Songs for Monsters by Kelly Dipucchio and illustrated by Gris Grimly. On the other hand, if you plan on spending your entire summer inside on the couch watching TV, I still recommend Sipping Spiders Through Straws. Your family will enjoy nothing more than you belting out a few spine-chilling tunes during commercials.
Some of my favorites were Home of the Strange, 99 Bottles of Blood on the Wall, If You’re Scary and You Know it, Clap Your Paws, My Body Lies Over the Ocean and Take Me Out to the Grave Yard. I will admit there a couple of the 18 songs that I was not familiar with the tune but enjoyed the lyrics anyway. Gris Grimly’s illustrations were absolutely sinister through out the book. Over all I found the book eerily entertaining and frightfully fun.
