  6. My favorite book is The Little Green Witch. Love the ending!

  7. I like Room on the Broom, but when I went to my stash of Halloween books the other day, I mostly had monster books! I really love Leonardo, the Terrible Monster by Mo Willems. It's so fun to read and just all around cute!

  8. Well, I taught secondary so things run a little different. I love Frankenstein though, so I guess you could call it a Halloween book! I also love to read Stellaluna to my daughter. Although it's not about Halloween or monsters, it's still good! I'd love to check out the books that you mention though!

  11. I like Scaredy Cat Splat. Mostly because I love the way that cat is drawn! But if I need to do a character ed lesson...it is Spookly the Square Pumpkin all the way!
