    Amazing illustrations; spooky but whimsical. The author/illustrator, Timothy Young, was gracious enough to spend literature day at my daughter's elementary school, sharing sketches and stories and answering questions about writing and art. His depictions in this book started my daughter asking about some of the classic characters he includes (the wolfman, the headless horseman, Mr. Hyde, etc.). Great fun for elementary and middle readers as well as their parents!

    I enjoy reading picture books from time to time. They are quick and fun. Plus, I love seeing my youngest son's reaction to them since this is right in pace with his age. We read Timothy Young's They're Coming together some time ago, but I'm just now getting around to writing the review. (I know, bad mommy!) We enjoyed it. Now, as the older reader, I knew what to expect. I was certain there was a twist ending, and I was not disappointed. For a barely five-year-old though-- the intended suspense was not missed. We enjoyed flipping the pages to see who else would be coming and for what. The ended managed to wrangle a smile from my son and a semi-snort. He liked the idea of a "monster mash." (His words!) I was particularly impressed with the illustrations. While the story was basic and didn't carry much of a plot, the pictures were great. The moon looked so realistic! I think the illustrations deserve more merit than the story in this one. The creatures are spooky without being too frightening. (I loved the Swamp Creature!) They are also familiar enough to be recognized by the youngest of readers, which is fun. I wish I had posted the review before Halloween because this would have been a fun read for the occassion. But alas, roads are paved with my good intentions. All the same, remember this one if you have young readers at home (under 4) next October. It will be a nice pseudo-spooky Halloween story to share

    2018-11-11 14:46’re Coming would be a good, easy read aloud for Halloween. Each page turn introduces a new creepy creature. The repetition of “They’re Coming!” would make it very interactive with a group of children. It also has a good ending that will make you smile. The only downside for me is that the art looks digital. It’s not so much that digital art is bad. It’s just that I personally like illustrations to look more “drawn.” It might just be because the creatures are all shadows. It makes them look like a bunch of vectors put together. It feels more graphic design and less children’s book. I don’t mean to sound too negative because it’s still a pretty good picture book.Disclosure: I received this book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

    Refreshing! While I was reading this on my tablet, my 5 year old was sitting beside me. As the story progressed we were expecting something. I was expecting something terrible to happen in a town or something. I don't want to offer spoilers because this storybook although simple, it is good.I will get this for my daughter. She said to me: “Mom that is pretty." And it is true; the illustrations created by Young go incredibly well with the story. Sure, the illustrations are digital, but I like them for their unusualness. The creatures look scary but at the same time nice. Through all the illustrations fog is predominant, which I liked for it added to the atmosphere.Recommend this storybook for kids at Pre-K level & up.Source: Provided by Schiffer Publishing Ltd. via Netgalley for an honest review

    I was blown away by the quality of this book. There are little details that my 4 and 5 year old simply adored. Even the paper was amazing. The story was fun and it became an "Again, Again" book with the first reading. The story had a bit of repetition that early readers love. As a mom and former teacher, I loved that the author used some really cool and unwatered down descriptors. The illustrations are simply beautifully. As for the ending, my four year old loved it and giggled and giggled and giggled.

    This is a good Halloween read. It references various classic monsters in black silhouette against moonlight and on every page repeats the line, "They're coming!" They're coming seems like a frightening line, of course, until you get to the end of the story and they reveal that they are coming to a party rather than to get you as the reader is meant to assume. Fun, really fast, and covers all the classics. Might be fun to find out how many classic monster types readers are aware of.

    Every imaginable creature is coming! Creatures from the forest, the swamp, and the graveyard. But why are they coming? And where are they coming to? Young readers will be delightfully spooked as they see all who are coming. The illustrations are created with an eerie color palette making this a perfect choice for a Halloween read-aloud that is a little spooky but not actually scary.
