Halloween is coming up!  It’s a night of pumpkins and candy and other spooky things.

Here are some books for you to read along with your creepiest night of the year.


Anya’s Ghost, by Vera Brosgol

This is not a ghost you want to be your friend.  Sadly.


Friends With Boys, by Faith Erin Hicks

This ghost would also not make a good friend, as she doesn’t ever talk but just wafts around spookily.


The Undertaking of Lily Chen, by Danica Novgorodoff

If you aren’t spooked by grave-robbing and crazy-mystical ancient Chinese customs, I don’t know what to tell you.


The Unsinkable Walker Bean, by Aaron Renier

Magical crystal skulls!  What could be more Halloween-y than that?  Except possibly filling them with candy. . . .


The Zoo Box, by Ariel Cohn and Aron Steinke

This book has costumes in it!  Um, they’re worn by children who are totally running for their life at the time, but still: costumes!

Happy Halloween!
