Tricks, Treats and (not so) Scary Surprises

Trick or Treat! And today's treats are all some of my new favorite Halloween Tales. We have a brave monster. A little ghost looking for a haunt. A Llama ready to have some fun. A favorite spooky poet of mine. A special black cat (and witch) and one crazy little seed!

Not Very Scary by Carol Brendler (illustrated by Greg Pizzoli): Melly is a brave monster. Afraid of nothing. However, the bumps in the night cause her a little concern as she goes to her cousins house for a big surprise!

Hop To It...

Cat has flair!  But the Easter Bunny is the one with all the love! Why should he? You will find out why in Here Comes the Eater Cat by Deborah Underwood.

Cat is envious of the Easter Bunny! But as the narrator speaks with Cat (and Cat answers in a very special way) he realizes that things are not what they seem! The Easter Bunny can't take seven naps during the day. Nor does he have a cool Harley like Cat (though he does have a nice vest...but does it sparkle like Cats?) The humor abounds as Cat finds fun solutions to the problems he would face as the Easter Cat and how he can help the actual Easter Bunny.

Simple but with the perfect amount of details illustrations by Claudia Rueda, and fun text by Underwood, make this a great Easter gift for the older child, teen or even adult. However, you can enjoy any time of the year! (READ MORE)
