    1. The Bones of Fred McFee by Eve Bunting, illustrated by Kurt Cyrus is the tale of a brother and sister who buy and bring home a plastic skeleton, name it Fred McFee, and hang it from a sycamore tree. Then eerie things begin to happen.After buying the plastic sketeton and hanging it on the sycamore tree, flies won't rise and the children's old dog Sam won't go near the tree. The rooster that crowed from the sycamore tree is gone and the hens won't lay. Sam howls on Halloween night and the next mor [...]


    2. What a great story! Not only did it have fun and spooky elements for Halloween, but there was a mystery and it really was kind of creepy! Also, the illustrations were fantastic. I've read a few Bunting Halloween books lately and I'm really liking her. Nice, simple, story lines, clean plot and smooth poetry, and just all around nicely put together book. We really like her. We might have to pick up some more by her!



    3. Mixed feelings on this one. I liked the rhyming text and the spooky tone to the story that could draw in older kids. There was something about the premise that didn't sit with me right and just ended up coming off as creepy versus enjoyably scary.


    4. I really don't know what to think of this book but I found the fact that the young children hung the skeleton in tree eerily distressing due to its similarity to lynching. I just couldn't get past that thought.



    5. This is a great spooky bedtime read. Not great for the library storytime environment because it's too spooky, but it's a bit of a scary mystery.



    6. Can’t say I loved this book, but I think it could be a fun and spooky book to share around Halloween. Kid friendly, but a little bit frightening.



    7. Perfect for Halloween season, this book is a rhyming story about a plastic skeleton hung in a tree in the backyard.


    8. This is a very well-written Halloween book, I thought. Eve Bunting, along with the crucially significant aid of illustrator Kurt Cyrus, effectively creates a pleasantly eerie atmosphere in which the young reader will really be made to wonder just what is going on with these "bones of Fred McFee", bones that are supposed to be completely synthetic. Constructed in the superb tradition of "The Ghost Eye Tree", this picture book packs a lot of punch for its size, in terms of how eerily scary it can [...]


    9. In this rhythmic story, an unsuspecting brother and sister bring a toy skeleton home from the harvest fair. They name it Fred McFee and hang it from a sycamore tree. Soon, eerie things begin to happen. And then on Halloween night, Fred vanishes!Spooky, spooky I love when pictures tell part of the story. Look for the small details - the dog's behavior, the "dingleberries" of the sycamore tree", the overturned jack o'lantern, the rotting pumpkins (sign of time passing) - all these things small ch [...]


    10. In this book, a brother and a sister bring home a plastic skeleton. They hang it up in the sycamore tree and name the skeleton Fred McFee. Some odd things happen, but they try to pay it no mind. I wasn't sure if I'd like this or not, but it was actually better than I thought it would be. It's actually a little bit creepy, but I don't think it will scare kids. This is definitely a great book for Halloween though. Very well-written and being a bit creepy makes it a great read.


    11. 37 months - We are currently reading a bunch of Halloween books (yes I know it's June). O grabbed this off the shelf at the library. What a fabulous story. The illustrations are amazing, the story has a great rhythm to it and we are left wondering what happened, who and why. A great spooky tale. Love and might just have to track down a copy for our Halloween collection.39 months - In preparation for Autumn bought a copy. :)


    12. This book is a poem about a skeleton taht two siblings drag home from a harvest fair. They hand the skeleton high up in a sycamore tree in their front yard.As I was reading this book, it gave me the chills! I can imagine reading it to children around Halloween in a slow and ominous voice. I'm certain it will scare them also!


    13. This spooky rhyming book, about a flea market skeleton hung in a tree for Halloween, is so much fun to read aloud. I might even have to buy it for myself. My kids really enjoyed the plot as well -- creepy!


    14. Oooh. What a spooky little book from the revered Eve Bunting. I like the premise of Fred McFee being made of plastic, but the very real dip into actual horror the ending has. A good balance for young readers without getting too scary. Would fare well during storytime.


    15. I've been reading this book to my 3.5 year old every night, she loves it! It's a great Halloween book with excellent illustrations. Lucky for me both of my girl's love spooky Halloween stuff so they were not frightened by this book at all.


    16. Mommy says: This spooky rhyming book, about a flea market skeleton hung in a tree for Halloween, is so much fun to read aloud. I might even have to buy it for myself. My kids really enjoyed the plot as well -- creepy!


    17. A brother and sister duo bring home a skeleton from the harvest fair, name him Fred McFee, and hang him in the sycamore tree. They leave him there for Halloween, and things get spooky. Soon, the bones of Fred McFee are no longer in the tree. I wonder where he went?


    18. Bunting's adorable book about the bones set in the backyard amused us both. No one likes to hear, "Read it again, Mama!" more than I do.
