Looking for some spooky good reads this Halloween? Below is our family’s list of all-time favorites. Have a Happy Halloween!
A cautionary tale from 1829 The Spider and the Fly will capture your children’s imagination. Tony DiTerlizzi spins a masterful retelling of Mary Howitt’s poetic fable with his perversely charming pictures. It’s such fun and best read with a wicked voice… Ba ha ha ha ha! (Ages 6-9)
Synopsis: Goodnight monsters everywhere, in this parody romp with its own special twist!
“Goodnight tomb. Goodnight goon. Goodnight Martians taking over the moon.”
It’s bedtime in the cold gray tomb with a black lagoon, and two slimy claws, and a couple of jaws, and a skull and a shoe and a pot full of goo. But as a little werewolf settles down, in comes the Goon determined at all costs to run amok and not let any monster have his rest.
A beloved classic gets a kind-hearted send up in this utterly monsterized parody; energetic art and a hilarious text will have kids begging to read this again and again.
Julia Donaldson, an English writer and playwright, is one of my favorite children’s authors. Her latest book to be published in the US is Where’s My Mom? Initially released in the early 2000’s in the U.K., Donaldson’s rhythmic and engaging style combined with Axel Scheffler’s cartoon illustrations, make for a very charming addition to your child’s library.
