Spook Sme Body Attic: 4

In the best Halloween tradition, these Spooky Pop-up books will give young readers pleasurable creepy-crawlies. Dracula and his buddies search for ``red-blooded friends for a small drink or two'' in Some Bodies in the Attic , and the mad scientist Doctor Frankenstein looks for ``a fresh body like you'' in The Door Under the Stairs . The visual effects are outstanding: giant bats and spiders dramatically lunge at the unsuspecting turner of these pages; lifting the tantalizing panels marked ``Do Not Open'' produces such spine-tinglers as a monster popping out of a coffin, a skull appearing in a window and a ghost in full scream; and pull tags remove characters' heads and take a mummy for a spin. It's all great scary fun to celebrate the witching season. Ages 6-9. (Sept.)
