Scary, Scary Halloween | Eve Bunting, Jan Brett
42 posts | 9 read | 6 to read
Four pairs of eyes stare from the blackness to watch fearsome creatures trick-or-treat. "Carefully planned and executed, illustrations and text nicely unified, this is well designed for group use and a fine introduction to Halloween story programs." -- School Library Journal, starred review

Traci1 Email went in my spam, but I found it. So, just to clarify, if I've read both the buddy books (Warm Bodies has been a while, but I just finished the Hendrix a month or so ago), i can use the wb sequel as my buddy read? I just picked it up from the library, so that'd be great. 😁 4mo
StayCurious @Traci1 absolutely! 4mo

1. We never get trick-or-treaters because we live in a controlled entry building. There are no kids who live here, so we have never had any.

2. Nope. I might do a Christmas one, the Grinch, but I don‘t for other holidays.

One of the teams is Mystery and Suspense so even if not that much into horror why not join up? 😊

BeansPage No worries sweetheart it'll be soon 😘😘 2y
Clwojick Hello love! Sorry I slept in super late this morning. 🤫🙈I took a look at your form, and we‘ll be putting you on #TeamSlaughter! Looks like you have some great books to choose from. ♥️ 2y
EadieB @Clwojick ok great! I‘ve already read Triptych and am currently reading the new book, The Last Widow. Great series! Do I need to read Triptych again? 2y
Clwojick You certainly don't have to. If you do read it, it counts towards the teams points, but you can certainly get points in other ways. Just read whatever strikes your fancy. 🙌 2y
EadieB @Clwojick ok but I am extremely competitive and will do whatever I have to in order to win! lol 2y
Clwojick 🖤😂😉 Glad you‘re on my team then. I‘m also pretty competitive! Watching scary/spooky/ Halloween movies will also come in handy for points this month, since I can get my husband to watch them with me. He‘s been bugging me to watch Us with him for months, but it looked too creepy. I told him I‘d watch it in October 😂 2y
EadieB @Clwojick I just put a hold on Triptych and will watch Halloween movies with my husband too as he is a movie watcher. 2y

Well, I've read this a few times recently and I'm pretty sure I'll read it a few more times before the month is out! Luckily I love this picture book about a mother cat & her kittens, seen only as glowing green eyes, hiding underneath a house on Hallowe'en & observing the goings-on. The illustrations are lovely & even the endpapers are spooky & fun. I particularly love the twist at the end when the timid kittens emerge full of fearless bluster.

mamareading We love Eve Bunting and have started a collection of her books, I'm going to look for this one to purchase right now! Thanks! 3y

Who is scared on Halloween? Why the creatures with the glowing eyes that hide under the porch.
