I am doing some readings in a couple of weeks' time. Age range of children will be from small (around 2 or 3) up to about 10.
I need some suitable Hallowe'en-themed stories, pref. picture books, and none too long (kids come and go during the readings, rather than sit for half an hour or whatever).

Room on the Broom is absolutely ideal in every way, so I'm really hoping for something along those lines.

Any ideas gratefully received! smile

Just reading "Ready, Steady, Ghost" to my 4 yo DD and she loves it. We also have the Angelina Ballerina Halloween story, which would appeal to girls of the age you mention I think.

There is another book called "The Ghost Library", again a lovely picture book, but sorry, I can't recall who the author is.

We have a book of the rhyme, "In a dark, dark wood, there's a dark, dark house....." and so on and so on.

V popular with the dcs.
