Win the Carole P. Roman Not-So-Spooky Halloween Prize Pack

Sponsored by Carole P. Roman
The Children’s Book Review | September 30, 2019

Halloween is the perfect time to read books that empower kids. Here’s why…

One of the best parts about dressing up for Halloween is that kids get to experience the empowerment that comes from trying on new personas! Carole P. Roman’s Can a Princess Be a Firefighter? imparts this exact message by encouraging kids to pursue their dreams and to also try new things. Plus, it provides plenty of Halloween costume inspiration. The Halloween season is also a great time of year to explore fears through a little spooky storytelling or even becoming a spook yourself. Oh Susannah: Things That Go Bump gently explores fears and showcases how the unexpected can turn out to be exciting and fun—and it also has a great plot-twist ending we think you’re going to love!

Enter for a chance to win the Carole P. Roman ‘Not So Spooky’ prize pack—includes a $100 gift card!

Oh Susannah- Things That Go BumpOh Susannah: Things That Go Bump

Written by Carole P. Roman

Illustrated by Mateya Arkova

Publisher’s Synopsis: Susannah Maya Logan is not having a good day. She doesn’t want to go to her best friend, Lola’s sleepover. Susannah thinks the house is big and spooky, not to mention the ghost that is said to live there. Lola’s big brother, Kai, loves to tease Susannah with scary stories. Throughout her day, she sees people deal with things that scare them. Her sight-impaired friend, Macy, is terrified of unicorns, of all things. She sees a boy at a party who’s frightened of clowns. Her teacher is afraid of getting a cold. Susannah realizes everybody is scared of something. She wishes she was more like Lola, who is not afraid of anything, or so it seems. Susannah discovers people have different ideas of what is scary and what is not, and only they can determine the difference. Join Susannah as she learns to confront her fears and not let her imagination prevent her from having fun.
