From Scholastic Book Services, Spooky Rhymes and Riddles (1972, Lilian Moore, illustrated by Ib Ohlsson) is a collection of poems on witches, ghosts and monsters. Unlike the childhood-scarring Poems to Trouble Your Sleep, these all favor fun over fright.
The complete contents are:
The Ghost in Our Apartment House
The Monster's Pet
When a Monster Scolds Her Children
What to Say to an Alligator
The Friendly Guy
The Ghost Goes to the Supermarket
The Monster's Birthday
Johnny Drew a Monster
There Was an Egg
Something Is There
Poem About THEM
When a Ghost Gets Smudgy
The Witch's Song
Teeny Tiny Ghost
Little ironic I think...
That's too funny. Great geeks think alike, apparently.
I'll keep an eye on Till The Following Night--some good stuff in there!
very cool book! Scholastic had so many great artists working for them back then...
I have this book! It was one of my favorites as a kid. Weirdly enough, there is also a name written on the cover of mine in the same place.

I love it, I want it, must have it
I had, may have a copy of this.
HI, so i want to take a moment and say that I was in grade school in the early 70's. It's impossible to express the joy I had when ordering from (Scholastic Book Services) and receiving books in my class like this one. I don't recall that I read much of them but I was elated to receive them and waited with crazy anticipation for them to arive.. I have such soft warm feeling to this day.. ahhhh... pjd
