The monsters crowd the Haunted Hall. Los monstruo throw a monstrous ball. This lively poem introduces a spooky array of creatures and Spanish words to little niños everywhere.

Reviews:
"Imaginations will be fired up by an evocative narration of the story...Background sounds include yowling cats and groaning monsters, and a haunting array of Spanish words fill the story." - AudioFile
"Ninos will enjoy this partially animated version of Marisa Montes's Halloween poem. They will learn a number of Spanish words while engaging with monsters at a ball. Includes an inspiring author interview." - ALA Notable Video Committee
"...(the narrator) delightfully youwls like los gatos (cats) and shrieks like los fantasmas (ghosts)...The wildly original illustrations float across the screen, or glimmer, as when the eyes of las calabazas (pumpkins) become 'beacons in the night'." - Booklist
"Just spooky enough for viewers who are ready for a bit of a chill, (the) book becomes livelier and even more suspenseful with eerie music and creepy creatures that fly...a must have." - Starred Review, School Library Journal
