Halloween Time is Arriving Once Again

Halloween is a great time of year. You get to dress up and run about with your friends saying “Trick or Treat” and collecting candy at every house in your sight. You get to eat sweet things that you would never be allowed but because this is a special time of year, you get this one time opportunity. So now that time of year is rolling around once more and the time for the scary displays and the costumes is arriving. It is time for the witches to do their hurleyburley and try and scare all of the little children into giving their candy to them. In recognition of the holiday (which is on a Saturday this year) for the rest of the month, I will be doing Halloween books. Some of the books I will be reviewing are The Graves Family by Patricia Polacco, HOOOOO’S Haunting the Teeny Tiny Ghost by Kay Winters, Winnie the Witch by Korky Paul and Valerie Thomas and many, many more. I hope you enjoy this little treat.

Halloween Quotes

On Hallowe’en the thing
you must do
Is pretend that nothing
can frighten you
An’ if somethin’ scares you
and you want to run
Jus’ let on like
it’s Hallowe’en fun.
– – – from an Early Nineteenth Century Halloween Postcard

From ghoulish and ghosties and long leggety beasties and things that go bump in the night,
Good Lord, deliver us!
