So Julia's been doing a bit of Halloween book reading! I prolly should have said, 'Halloween Chapter Books for Girls' but hey, I didn't want to put a boy off from reading about ghost horses and candy fairies, because really, those types of things can be enjoyed by EVERYONE.
Oooh, the Candy Fairies books. Julia loves. Soooooooo very much! She was saving 'Gooey Goblins: Candy Fairies Halloween Special' for this month and she just read it and loooooooooved it. She adores this series! Man oh man, how I wish these had been around when I was little. Candy fairies? Sailing on a Vanilla Sea? Goblins and royal candy baskets? And adorable drawings of cute fairies???? SO UNFAIR I didn't have these as a kid!
And then we have 'Ghost Horse'. Awesome, don't you think? Julia is super keen on mystery type books (I wonder if she would like Nancy Drew in a bit??), and she saw this one at a book store and went snatchy snatch. She hasn't read it yet and I only gave it a cursory flip through, but hey, aren't those pix of some girls petting and loving on a DEAD HORSE super cute?
(I wonder how the horse died???? Maybe I should go look. Don't you love when I do reviews when I don't really know anything about the book?)
I love Halloween. Hey, I figure this book has got be more appropriate than 'The Omen' (yeah that one!) which somehow I got into at a friend's house when I was ten. Good grief.
