Moldilocks and the Three Scares

Papa Scare (a monster), Mama Scare (a mummy), and Baby Scare (a vampire) live in a haunted house big enough for four, where they eat finger sandwiches and alpha-bat soup. Still, they can't help but feel like something is missing. One night, they go out to walk their dog (a bloodhound, of course) to let their soup cool down. While they're away, in walks the zombie Moldilocks, looking for food, a chair, and a bed that's just right... and leaving a little havoc and mess along the way. Fortunately, it turns out that the three Scares have been looking for someone just like Moldilocks — and Moldilocks has been looking for a family like them!

Kids will love this zombie-tastic, just-spooky-enough take on a favorite fairy tale that's hauntingly funny — with a surprise ending that's ghoulishly heartwarming!

"Despite having a ghost dog and a bell tower full of bats, [the Scares] each yearn for a missing someone. Enter green-skinned Moldilocks, who, drawn by a scent that 'smelled like home, something she hadn’t enjoyed in a long, long time,' lumbers into the momentarily vacated Scare house and wreaks the same havoc as her fairy tale counterpart.... Instead of exhibiting fury, the family that discovers her welcomes her with open arms: 'HOW DARE YOU... eat without us!' a joyful Papa cries. 'I’ve always wanted another mouth to feed.' It’s a horror spoof with a big heart." — Publishers Weekly
