Halloween is Here

Share this

Halloween is almost here and, to gear up for the excitement of costumes and candy, I found a few other holiday treats to get us in the mood (or help calm us down after a good sugar-rush):

Start your reading adventure with not-so-scary B Is for Boo: A Halloween Alphabet by Greg Paprocki. A retro style illustrated creation with classic choices (B is for Boo) and pleasant surprises (R is for Raven) make this a book you’ll love to put in your goodie bag.

But don’t over indulge just yet. We must get to Emu’s Halloween by Anne Mangan. Here we celebrate Halloween with an Aussie twist as Emu and friends get ready for Emu’s Halloween party. Grab your costume and join the excitement with delightfully detailed (but not busy) illustrations adding to the adventure.

Of course, we cannot forget the older goblins of this fine holiday. How to Make Friends with A Ghost by Rebecca Green and Pomegranate Witch by Denise Doyen are the perfect solutions for your reading sweet eye. Who doesn’t want to share treats with friends? In How to Make Friends with a Ghost you’ll learn how to make a truly lifelong (and beyond) friend. Or perhaps share an expedition by trying to trick the Pomegranate Witch out of her tasty pomegranate fruit. Both are recommended for slightly older children or as a gift to an adult, ghost, witch or bogeyman friend.

And we all have that favorite go-to candy, be it a chocolate bar, Candy Corn or those sweet and tangy Sweet Tarts. But how about adding The Halloween Tree to the list this year? Learn the history of Halloween in a classic novel by Ray Bradbury.

Halloween is about spooks, candy, costumes and fun. And the Northshire Bookstore is here to help you delight the reading taste buds.
