In the mood for some frightfully fun and spooky reads?
Donna Davies, the Halloween Queen, channels her love of this haunting holiday into her charming, comical children’s books. She has released six books, including a coloring book, that all center around the legends of All Hallow’s Eve.
Ms. Davies is a staunch supporter of local libraries and historical societies, she serves as President of the Sleepy Hollow Cemetery Historic Fund and curates the Hudson Valley Halloween Magazine as an “en-spook-lopedia” of all things grim and ghoulish in the area.
It’s Halloween and you’re out for the night,
Not quite realizing you’re in for a fright.
The candy creepers have come to town,
And they will gobble your candy down.
The candy creepers are masters of disguise, but boy are they in for a big surprise.
A fun Halloween book sure to bring back fond childhood memories with a surprise ending!
Delightfully illustrated by Rob Peters.
