A collection of 3 stories set on Halloween starring several of everyone‘s favorite villains, and of course Batman (and Alfred, who is almost my favorite). I liked the last story best, a Halloween version of A Christmas Carol. #TeamStoker

I have heard of bowl cuts, but pumpkin cuts? 😂 Some of the “facts” in this book were questionable, such as this one and one stating that witches “poured bat blood on themselves” (if anyone has heard of these let me know). At least most of the art was cute. #TeamStoker

Extremely good and thorough look at folklore related to vampires and burial practices. He looks at what they believed, and what was the truth and likely causes of what was reported as having been seen. Multiple translations of reports from the times done by the author. All written with a dry wit that keeps it very readable. #TeamStoker

It‘s Halloween! Tim Curry is coming over to get ready to jump with me! Jimmy Carter helped us punching pumpkins, & now Heath Ledger & I are going to put them in the cafe. We are full after eating anchovies, & are ready to go now! Tom Felton told us to watch out for the Eiffel Tower down the street because it‘s scary with roly poly webs & broken boxes. It‘s the house where Sam Smith & Wil Ferrel live!

Geeklet I loved J-horror (and other Asian horror) so much during the years where it was pretty big. I didn‘t keep up with releases much after the trend died but some of those movies are my favorite horror flicks. Ever seen A Tale of Two Sisters? It‘s SOOOO good! There was an American remake but it was pretty awful. 2w

I wanted to love this book which claims to give the history of many Halloween symbols. Unfortunately I can‘t even recommend it. It jumps between myth & fact, places & times without real coherence. Some “facts” are thrown in seemingly for shock value (druids burning people alive in cages-in a kids book). And nowhere does she give any source material to back up her claims. I will give any other books in this series a hard pass #TeamStoker 6 pts
