Tomba-la-ca, tomba-la-ca, tomba-la! Come enter into the creepy-crawly, mischievous and mysterious world of Skeletitos, where being on the other side of life is never an excuse for not having a good time!

Tap your fingers or stomp your feet, no need to sit still. After all, before you know it, our time will be up! Our Day of the Dead themed tales carry a comedic twist for kids, encouraging them to be wary, conscious, funny and self-aware. The first book in the Skeletitos collection features a moveable clock. Little fingers will be tempted to change the hour along with the story, while learning to count and tell time!
