Description


Something strange is in the air on this dark, cold night.

The members of Fright Club are always ready to scare, but tonight Fran K. Stein has something else on his mind. He's busy making something, and the other monsters want to know what it is.

Could it be a mask with fangs? A big pink nose? Or maybe a paper butt? No . . . it's a Valentine!

That means one thing . . . EEEEK!! Is Fran in love? What could be scarier than falling in love?!?

In this hilariously spooky story by Geisel Award-winning author and illustrator Ethan Long, even the scariest of monsters have true feelings.

Praise For…


"Long's dark, ghostly palette sets an appropriately eerie mood, and he has a lot of fun with the cuddly animals' reign of terror. . . Don’t worry about what goes bump in the night, Long seems to suggest--daylight can be plenty scary, too." - Publishers Weekly on FRIGHT CLUB

"Long delivers an original story full of droll humor while also introducing the concept of questioning stereotypes and rules. . . Long ably proves that 'when it comes to scaring, the more the merrier.'" - Kirkus Reviews on FRIGHT CLUB

"Silly but entertaining." - School Library Journal on FRIGHT CLUB

"It’s a funny Halloween concept that delivers." - The Horn Book on FRIGHT CLUB

"The lighthearted tone makes this Halloween tale a perfect pick for younger children. Monster names such as Virginia Wolf and Mumford N. Suns will entertain the adults as well." - Booklist on FRIGHT CLUB

"Doubling as a baby book and an early reader, this book about the ups and downs of avian rivalry succeeds abundantly on both fronts." - The New York Times on UP! TALL! AND HIGH!

How to Use Your Gift Cards Online

Hello! If you have a Flying Pig gift card (the cute plastic one with the pig and clouds), here's how to use it online:

Select the books you'd like to order. During the checkout process, you'll see a menu of options. Click on the little black arrow next to Store Gift Card pane:

Once you've expanded that menu item, you'll see a box to check Yes:

Once you click the checkbox Yes, you'll be asked to enter your gift card number. That's the number under the barcode on the back of your gift card. It might be a short or long number:

Enter it into the box below the words Enter Your Gift Card Number:

That's it! You will have to add a credit card as a backup in case your gift card doesn't cover the full amount of your purchase. **Because the website doesn't 'know' what amount is on your store gift card — the website and store system are separate entities — you will not see your gift card applied until your order leaves its Pending status and is Processing or Completed.**

If you received an Online Gift Code (NOT a physical card, but a string of numbers and letters emailed to you), please refer to your emailed gift to redeem those! They are applied instantly when you visit the website via the gift code email.
