Happy Halloween!

I hope everyone had a safe fun and enjoyable Halloween.

In the past I am usually able find an interesting book to read and review for Halloween. I found one of my favorite authors Adam Rex, this way. Rex is an amazing illustrator and all around creative mind who really has fun with his books. Two of my favorite picture books are "Frankenstein Makes a Sandwich" and Frankenstein Takes the Cake." both are humorous and wacky collections of poetry that tell the tale of Frankenstein and other monsters of lore. I also thoroughly enjoyed Rex's foray in to books for 8 to 14-year-old children, "The True Meaning of Smekday."

So I went looking for his newest book, "Fat Vampire." Unfortunately I was unable to find it at my local bookstore and will have to order it. Once I read it, expect a full review.

Until then, it is time to begin thinking about the holidays. If you have any suggestions for books I should review, I'd love to hear from you.
