The Perfect Spooky Reads From Abrams Children's Books! #GIVEAWAY

Halloween is a time for all things spooky and scary. My little ones like a a little bit of scary - they loved Hotel Transylvania! Aliens, friendly monsters, haunted houses are their favorite kind of creepy fun. I was personally excited to see another book by Ghoulia as it was one of my favorite stories (perfect for Halloween theme but not really scary if your worried about that.) The lift-the-flap Monsters Come Out Tonight! is sure to be a hit with my 3 year old.

·       From Emmy Award-winning actor Henry Winkler and Lin Oliver comes a new out-of-this-world middle-grade series.
·       No one is shocked by the six-eyed alien strolling around the Universal back lot. The tourists just think he’s part of the show. It doesn’t take long for Buddy to land a role on a popular TV show, playing (of course) an alien.
·       He becomes an overnight heartthrob and is suddenly faced with legions of adoring fans, rides in glamorous limos, and appearances at “all-the-shrimp-you-can-eat” red carpet parties. But can Buddy maintain his secret identity while in the spotlight?

IN THE HALL WITH THE KNIFE (A CLUE MYSTERY, BOOK #1) By Diana Peterfreund, October 8, 2019 (young adult, ages 12+)

When a storm strikes at Blackbrook Academy, a motley crew of students—including Beth “Peacock” Picach, Orchid McKee, Vaughn Green, Sam “Mustard” Maestor, Finn Plum, and Scarlet Mistry—are left stranded on campus with their headmaster.
·       Hours later, his body is found in the conservatory and it’s very clear his death was no accident. With this group of students who are all hiding something, nothing is as it seems, and everyone has a motive for murder.
·       Fans of the CLUE board game and cult classic film will delight in this modern reimagining of the brand, its characters, and the dark, magnificent old mansion with secrets hidden within its walls.
