Underneath the bed in the invisible swamp, the Ankle Grabber waits. While running and jumping into bed is usually enough to avoid being caught, sometimes even that is not enough.

Filled with illustrations that encourage a child's imagination, these unique, personal-sized books are sure to entertain even the most reluctant reader. Sometimes things are not what they seem, so bring a flashlight and dive into the scary world of Creepies.
