These three spooky tales are perfect for Halloween, but young readers will be back to reread them again and again. Done in graphic novel form, the illustrations by David Huyck are as funny as the stories are creepy but not too creepy.

In A Broom With a View, Giselle finds the perfect witch costume and completes it with a broom. When she dresses for trick-or treating her broom's behavior leads her into trouble. Her one spooky night is just beginning.

In 10,000 Tentacles Under the Tub, two brothers dress up as Aqua Heroes. After leading their dad on a laugh-filled Halloween journey as they keep Sea Monsters in check, they return home for a bath. The bath is just the beginning of a scary adventure that could only happen on that one spooky night. My favorite part of this story involves the dog.

In The Fang Gang, four friends are laughed at because their costumes aren't scary enough. They change costumes and change that one spooky night for everyone.
