Ghosts, werewolves, witches, zombies, and monsters... Halloween can be a scary time of year to venture outside, so we completely understand if you would rather stay at home and read a book. But, if you want the best of both worlds — scaring yourself half-to-death without ever leaving the safety of your armchair — have we got some books for you!
Following last year's chilling Zombies: A Record of the Year of Infection, Chronicle Books have published Werewolves, an illustrated journal that plunges you headlong into the life of a high school girl-turned-werewolf as she makes her transformation!
If you're more craftily inclined, then Witchcraft, Quirk Books' follow up to Creepy Cute Crochet, is full of color photos and simple illustrated instructions for crafting everyday items into wonderfully witchy treats: A truly wicked charm bracelet made from a handful of old trinkets; spooky little skulls made out of marshmallows; a bewitching midnight black tutu that can be stitched up in minutes; a wicked poison apple fashioned from an everyday plushie; witches, monsters, spiders, and ghosts to top your cupcakes; and much, much more!
For kids, there is Owlkids' My Beastly Book of Monsters to get your creative little beast doodling, scribbling, colouring, and drawing. And, with 30 recipes for Halloween fun, the Little Monsters Cookbook will have your little monsters cooking in the kitchen in no time.
