Fun Halloween Picture Books To Your Collection!
Last month I came across a Pinterest post that showed some cute Halloween books, and I’ve been on the hunt ever since! I was able to get 80% of the books that I was looking for. However, a few of the books that I wanted (Ghosts, No Such Thing) were tough to find. I was able to find Ghosts, but it is currently on backorder. The only copy of No Such Thing by Ella Bailey that I was able to find is in French! Thankfully, I happen to speak/read French! lol
Below are some of the books I was able to get my hands on! I also included the direct links to where you can buy them as well! Please note that some of the links are affiliates. This means when you make a purchase using my link, I earn a small commission.
Check them out and let me know which one you would like to read first!
Gilbert The Ghost by Guido van Genechten
Gilbert goes to ghost school like all the other ghosts, but he’s a special ghost: he doesn’t like to screech in a scary way, he doesn’t want to haunt and was always polite. What will happen to Gilbert when he’s sent by the principal of school to the Abandoned Tower? A warmhearted picture book by bestselling author-illustrator Guido Van Genechten about a different, special ghost.
The Scariest Book Ever by
Reader beware! This is the scariest book ever! Or so claims its melodramatic ghost narrator. You can go ahead and turn the page, but don’t expect him to come with you. Anything might pop out of that black hole in the middle of the forest. What do you mean it’s just a bunny? Well, it’s probably a bunny with big fangs. Watch out, it’s–picking pumpkins with its friends, you say? Actually, despite the ghost’s scare-mongering, none of the animal characters in the illustrations seem scary at all. . . . What’s up with that? Many delights, such as surprises after the page turn, an alarmist narrator, and punch lines to anticipate make this book a scream for both kids and parents.
Vampirina Ballerina by Anne Marie Pace
Oh, to be a ballerina! It’s a challenge for any little girl, but even more so if you happen to be a vampire like Vampirina. First of all, you have to find a class that meets at night. Then you have to figure out how to perfect your form when you can’t see yourself in the mirror? And then there’s wearing pink (not the most flattering of colors if you happen to be undead) and that nagging urge to take a little nip out of the other dancers. And worse of all? STAGE FRIGHT!!!
Bonaparte Falls Apart by Margery Cuyler
Bonaparte is having a tough time. It’s hard for this young skeleton to just hang loose when he can’t keep hold of himself.
