All monsters are scary - or are they? On Halloween night, a trick-or-treater finds out for herself when she visits an old house rumored to be haunted. Upon entering, she meets a ghost, a witch, a vampire, and a mummy. However, these monsters are not scary at all. Instead, they all need assistance. They've been SCARY-O-TYPED! After she helps solve their problems, she receives the best treat of all - an unexpected friendship.

Beautifully illustrated and well written in rhyme, Scary-O-Typed! is a warm, funny picture book for children of all ages that can be enjoyed throughout the year.
