Vampire Boy's Good Night {Giveaway}

Oh, how I love Halloween and everything about it from dressing up to trick-or-treating to feeling jittery hearing the wind rustling through the fallen leaves.  I also enjoy reading spooky stories, and some not-so-spooky ones with my son.
One of the most recent Halloween books to enter our collection is Lisa Brown's Vampire Boy's Good Night.  Despite the main character being a vampire, this story is really quite sweet.  Bela, the vampire boy, goes out on Halloween night with his friend, a witch named Morgan, looking to catch a glimpse of children--which they don't believe exist. I like how it plays on the idea of kids going out on Halloween looking for ghouls and scary beings.

Soren really liked this book, even though I'm not sure he really gets the whole Halloween thing.  He enjoyed the characters and the Halloween party that occurs in the book. I love the illustrations, which are really delightful!  It's a wonderful pre-Halloween treat. I imagine that we'll read it every October.

There are also many cool things on the Vampire Boy's Good Night website, like coloring pages, Jack-O-Lanter stencils, and more about the characters in the book.

  21. Jasper and Roo are OBSESSED with Halloween, so I will have to check this out. I love that Morgan is reading the Crucible and that Bela's raven is named Edgar. So nice when authors don't feel a need to dumb stuff down for kids!
