Spooky Reads from Macmillan!



Fall is in full force and it's the perfect time to curl up with a spooky book! Even though we don't do Halloween, everybody loves a little fright every now and then - these books from Macmillan allow even little ones to enjoy a little scare. {Books provided for review/feature consideration}









MONSTER TRUCKS 
by Joy Keller 
Illustrated by Misa Saburi 
(Macmillan Children’s/Henry Holt BYR/Godwin Books, August 29, 2017)


Though this story imagines monsters in their off-season, this is a great monster-filled read for fall!

Snow plow, street cleaner, cherry picker, bulldozer—there are all kinds of trucks at work in this story.

With a gentle bedtime ending, this is a great bedtime or naptime read!

Misa Saburi is a new talent in children's illustration, and her sweet characters are completely charming.






BETTER OFF UNDEAD 
by James Preller 
(Macmillan Children’s/Feiwel & Friends, October 31, 2017)


Zombies make for the perfect middle school metaphor; because, aren't all middle-schoolers undead/zombies, shambling their way through adolescence? Funny and compassionate, this is a sweet spot for Preller.

The undead don't seem to fade away. The humor of a zombie in middle school with normal kids will appeal to the audience, boys and girls.

Saving the planet, one river at a time, ties into curriculum and service learning in middle school.


Until next time...
