A rollicking, spooky-fun trip through the most haunted home in America: the White House!It was late October, the moon was pale,late in October when it came by mail:a letter, a missive, a kind invitationto drum at THE MOST HAUNTED HOUSE IN THE NATION! When the Skeleton Drummers receive an invitation from the First Lady to perform at the biggest Halloween party of a lifetime-or afterlife-the band must pack their instruments, rise from the earth, and prepare to rock the White House. With gusto and bone-rattling beats, the skeletons BOOM! BANG! and CLANG! as the crowd of trick-or-treaters dance on the president' s lawn. But when the party moves inside, something' s not quite right: there' s a chill in the air and a prickle of fright. There' s one thing you might not know: The White House is haunted from top to toe! With rhyming, rhythmic text from Jarret Dapier and wonderfully macabre illustrations from Lee Gatlin, this musical tour of America' s most famous home is full of spooky surprises at every turn.
