On the first stroke of midnight, ten children, two dogs and a cat enter a haunted funhouse. On their journey through the rooms, they encounter bats and witches and goblins. As the clock strikes, the children bravely sing, "Oh, nothing frightens me!" and one by one they disappear. By the twelfth stroke of midnight, only one brave child is left and he's about to get a big surprise! This Halloween story is spooky and fun, and just right for young readers.
