Spooky Reads: Halloween 2021
last updated 27 October 2021
There is a crisp breeze in the October air, bringing notes of pumpkin spice and prompting us to add another layer to our wardrobe. But the best part of this season is still to come! Carved pumpkins and decorative ghouls have been teasing the spirit of Halloween for weeks, but the day has finally arrived. Bright artists have illustrated many spooky BOOks in years past, so to celebrate Halloween weekend we have gathered them here for you! Read along…if you dare…enjoy and have a safe and sweet weekend of dressing up and trick-or-treating!
