About the Author:

Colin Hawkins was educated at art school in the north of England and then worked as an illustrator/designer for the Daily Express before becoming an illustrator for magazines and advertising. He began to illustrate children's books in 1978 and from 1979 onwards he has created his own children's books with his wife, Jacqui.

From School Library Journal:

ea. vol: unpaged. Silver Burdett. Sept. 1985. PS $4.31. Gr 3-5 Three mundane conglomerations of jokes, cartoons, rhymes and anecdotes that are neither scary nor amusing. The brightly colored cartoons are adequate but often cluttered; the jokes are tired (``I'm dying for a bite,'' utters a vampire, for probably the millionth time). Witches is the best of the bunch; it sports a slightly subtler sense of humor than the other two. Overall, the mediocre ``facts,'' jokes and rhymes, many of which are stretched beyond their limits just to fill up space, make these books unnecessary purchases. Try Schwartz's In a Dark, Dark Room (Harper, 1984), Gantos' The Werewolf Family (Houghton, 1980; o.p.) or Ahlberg's Funnybones (Greenwillow, 1981) for a better quality of ghouls and giggles.
