by Dr. Seuss
"Dr. Seuss in a glowing new format
"What were we waiting for? We ve taken the classic Dr. Seuss short story "What Was I Scared Of? "(from "The Sneetches and Other Stories"), added glow-in-the-dark ink, and created the ultimate just-slightly-spooky read for slumber parties and perusal by flashlight Perfect for Halloween, this splendidly silly story about a narrator terrorized by an empty pair of pants (which happens to be equally terrified of the narrator) works perfectly well the rest of the year, too, delivering a timeless message about fear and tolerance to boot. Scaredy-pants of all ages will quiver with delight "
