New Halloween Favourites From Raincoast Books

It wasn’t so long ago it was my little ones first Halloween and I remember the cuteness of those first few years.  Ok, more like 10 years ago now. I dressed my boys in a cute lion suit their first Halloween and my eldest was a penguin when he was two. Today I would like to introduce you and your little reader to some New Halloween favourites from Raincoast books. I wish I had had a cute non-spooky book like Herbert’s First Halloween by author Cynthia Rylant to introduce some of the traditions of Halloween to my kids. For older kids How To Catch A Monster by Adam Wallace is a funny ninja adventure where the young ninja sets out to catch a monster from his/her closet. It is also another in his series of How to Catch… Last year I reviewed How to Catch an Elf you can view that review here. (more…)
