101 Haunted House Funnies (1980, Patrick M. Reynolds, Weekly Reader Books)

101 Haunted House Funnies (1980, a Weekly Reader Book written and illustrated by Patrick M. Reynolds) is a fun collection of jokes, puzzles and games with spooky themes that initially caught my attention because the hand-lettered titles on the cover are clearly styled after the font used for The Story and Song From the Haunted Mansion LP.

In fact, that little ghost in the upper right corner looks suspiciously similar to the organ banshees on that album's interior cover.

Here's a sampling of the activities, puzzles, and groan-inducing jokes contained within:

I thought this look familiar. But as soon as I saw the cartoon about the teen ghost wanting to dress different I KNEW I had this once, a long time ago! How cool!

I have this on one of my bookcases! I have had it forever, but not from when I was actually a kid. Well, depending on the definition of kid I suppose!
