27th October

Halloween is nearly here and the children I teach have been talking about costumes and where they are going for Halloween since school came back for Term 4. I take the opportunity to put out on display all the books that are remotely related to Halloween. My shelves are so tightly packed that gems won't be borrowed unless displayed. Out come books on ghosts, witches, wizards, monsters, the dark, pumpkins...it is a real smorgasbord. The books are borrowed though which is good, even oldies like Vivian French's Little Ghost; Colin and Jacqui Hawkins' Come for a Ride on the Ghost Train; Spooks and Vampires; Frank Rodgers' Who's Afraid of the Ghost Train?; Ruth Brown's A Dark, Dark Tale; Linda Williams' The Little Old Lady Who Was Not Afraid of Anything; and Daniel Postgate's The Hairy Toe.

Then there's the newer, very popular ones such as:
Skeleton Hiccups by Margery Cuyler
Room on the Broom by Julia Donaldson
Three Little Ghosties by Pippa Goodhart
Spookyrumpus by Tony Mitton
Spooky Spooky Spooky! by Cathy MacLennan
Pumpkin Moon by Tim Preston
Boo! by Lois Ehlert
Mona the Vampire by Sally Holleyman
