1. Big Pumpkin by Erica Silverman

A small bat demonstrates that intelligence is more important than strength in this not-so-spooky Halloween picture book.

A witch grows a massive pumpkin, and now that it’s Halloween and ready to be picked, she wants to bake a pumpkin pie. But the pumpkin’s gigantic! She can’t pick it off the vine.

None of the other spooky creatures can move it, either. Not the vampire. Not the ghost. Not even the mummy. There’ll be no pumpkin pie for Halloween unless someone can move it. Then the bat comes along with an idea to save the day.

Find out how the tiny bat succeeds where the others fail. You’ll be surprised!

2. Jirtdan’s Halloween by Darya Hodaei

Jirtdan and his friends take an extraordinary trip to Disney World in this retelling of a classic story.

Just as in the original story, Jirtdan uses his intelligence to talk others into doing his work for him. When a ferocious ogre kidnaps the youngsters and holds them hostage, they must join forces again.

A perfect mix of Halloween fun and fright, this retelling is also rich with cultural lessons and old traditions – a delightful read for all ages!

3. Plinky Witch and the Grand Halloween Scheme by Liz Cooper

Plinky Witch, wearing stripey stockings one day, had a thought.—Halloween would be a lot more fun if it happened every night rather than just once a year! The Happy Broomsticks Club think that’s a great idea, and they work hard to create trick-or-treating forever. What they don’t know is that their Grand Halloween Scheme has a few surprises along the way.

With a beautiful tale of friendship, cooperation, and problem-solving set around a special holiday, Liz Cooper weaves a charming narrative. The amusing details and lovely paintings contribute to the enjoyment. Plinky Witch encourages us to utilize our imaginations, learn from our mistakes, and never give up striving for new activities. This fable is suitable for children of all ages.
