Clatter Bash! Review

Clatter Bash! by Richard Keep

Graveyard skeletons shake, rattle, and roll in this spirited Day of the Dead celebration!

The illustrations are bold, colorful, fun and, even though they are skeletons, cheerful too. A lot of the words are sounds like ‘honk-whiz’ and ‘whoosh-sploosh’ that make it fun to read. And the addition of the Spanish words is nice too. There is a very good explanation of the Day of the Dead holiday that tells you why and how it is celebrated that is easily understandable to all ages. It is a fun and informative book.
