All Hallow's Read: A Few Spooky Suggestions for Kids

Last year Neil Gaiman made a a modest proposal and I eagerly responded to it. Since then his idea to give books for Halloween has grown with a site of its own and lots of enthusiasm all over the place. Having had a lot of fun creating a Last Gasp Summer Reading video, Betsy Bird and I decided to support Neil's initiative by making a Spooky Recommendations edition. Enjoy!

Here are, in order of mention, the books we featured:

  • The Chronicles of Harris Burdick by Chris Van Allsburg and others
  • Anya's Ghost by Vera Brosgol
  • The Inquisitor's Apprentice by Chris Moriarty
  • Akata Witch by Nnedi Okorafor
