spooky reads

Ok, so as you may have guessed from the amount of Halloween posts that I have been uploading, we are a bit of Halloween fanatics. So, yes... more spooky goodness today to share with you. One of the things Roger and I love to collect are vintage children's Halloween books (I am using vintage loosely here, since the books are from the 60s - 8os). Our future children are going to have such a kick-ass library.... er, hopefully they'll like Halloween too! But for now, we will be the big kids hoarding the collection. We seem to find a couple every year when we are in second hand books shops... and it has snowballed a bit over the years... above are some of our faves! Do you have a fave Halloween childhood favorite?

I love the little one called "Rabbit and Skunk and Spooks"! It looks adorable. I may have to start a collection now too. They all look great! xo

I love the Gus the Ghost books! I have one with a purple cover somewhere. I forget which one it is though. That used to be one of my favorite series to borrow from the library when I was little. :)

Stephen King! I started reading him at about nine, but I was kind of a spooky kid, myself!

When I was little, I really loved the book, "The Witch Has an Itch." It's about a witch who turns out to be allergic to doing bad things. Very amusing.
