@Kindle ⚞ The Bones of Fred McFee á eBook or E-pub free

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. Two children find a life like skeleton at the market and bring it home to hang in their syca tree as a Halloween decoration They choose to call him Fred McFee and enjoy the way his bones rattle in the wind and that he chases their dog away from the tree Come the morning after Halloween, however, Mr McFee is gone leaving a mystery behind.The haunting illustrations have a colored woodcut style that is very Halloweenie The story is told in rhyme that adds a very nice twitchy touch to the tale The words create a bewitching poem that evokes memories from childhood about what is scary and why The feeling of the unknown and haunted that drift in the air this time of year A highly recommended Halloween read. @Kindle ß The Bones of Fred McFee Í Amazing Book, The Bones Of Fred McFee Author Eve Bunting This Is Very Good And Becomes The Main Topic To Read, The Readers Are Very Takjup And Always Take Inspiration From The Contents Of The Book The Bones Of Fred McFee, Essay By Eve Bunting Is Now On Our Website And You Can Download It By Register What Are You Waiting For Please Read And Make A Refission For You This can be a sufficiently creepy read aloud if you use hushed tones and raised eyebrows. This is one of my favorite books from my childhood My dad has read it to me on Halloween for my entire life 17 years going strong It s rhyming and illustration makes the story so delightfully spooky It is somewhat creepy and scary at times, but that s the fun of Halloween Would highly recommend this for adults and children Challenge Borrowathon Round 6 Completely read a book in a different setting 3 I read this book sitting outside on my porch on the celadon green creme glider The overcast and breezy day, like autumn than spring, was a good setting for reading this little Halloween book This is the first book I have read by this author who has than 250 published books and editions The atmospheric illustrations are done in scratch board and watercolor. Even I found this to be a fair bit creepy Good read though, especially for someone around the age of ten I would imagine I wouldn t give it to a 5 6 year old, but in a couple of years I d definitely recommend it to my nephews. 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. 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 syca tree Then eerie things begin to happen.After buying the plastic sketeton and hanging it on the syca tree, flies won t rise and the children s old dog Sam won t go near the tree The rooster that crowed from the syca tree is gone and the hens won t lay Sam howls on Halloween night and the next morning the skeleton has vanished, and a long, lean mound lies beneath the tree When the wind howls and shakes the syca tree, the children hear the bones dancing the dance of the dead The rhyming, alliterative text paints a spooky word picture of strange goings on around the syca tree where Sam McFee hangs One of my favorite verses At night when the wind howls overhead, With ghoulish, ghastly glee, Our skeleton dances the dance of the dead, There in our syca tree.Effectively extending the word pictures painted by the verse are the illustrations done in scratchboard and watercolor Cyrus creates eerie drawings featuring the bones, leaves, wind, jack o lanterns, and an owl My favorite images include Sam dancing in the wind, Sam sporting a rooster feather, Sam s howl on halloween night, and the final illustration of the moon and tree branches.This offers the opportunity for an atmospheric read aloud of verse around Halloween I enjoyed this effective collaboration.For ages 4 to 7, halloween, rhyme, skeletons, brothers and sisters, trees, nighttime, wind, and fans of Eve Bunting and Kurt Cyrus. 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 by her
