Jingle Spells
Author: James Brown
Really great idea combining the holiday occasions all children love best- Christmas and Halloween! We follow Trixie- a determined young witch who sets out to prove not all witches should be on the naughty list. Wonderful detailed illustrations which my girls loved but overall we felt that the story got a bit muddled and rushed in places... although it did help us get in the festive mood!

Busy Halloween
Author: Louise Forshaw Illustrator: Louise Forshaw
Lovely book that fits in perfectly into the "Busy" series. The vibrant colourful pictures and interactive activity makes my girls want to read this again and again and the short rhyming sentences are memorable and catchy for them. We especially liked the extra questions on each page that my 4 year old could answer and it was lovely to watch my 1 year old work the pull flaps. No doubt we will be reading this even more as it gets closer to Halloween, thanks Toppsta.

Jane Foster's Halloween
Author: Jane Foster Illustrator: Jane Foster
Saw this at the library and being big Jane Foster fans we had to borrow it! Like all her books, it's nice and chunky- perfect for little hands and with the amazing illustrations my girls were really entertained. My eldest loved reading the words (and pictures) to her sister and its really got us in the mood for Halloween.

That's Not My Prince
Author: Fiona Watt Illustrator: Rachel Wells
What we've come to expect from the "that's not my" series- lovely textured touchy feely sections to keep my baby entertained with a search for the white mouse for my 3 year old. My eldest now reads these books to her sister which is just lovely. Thoroughly recommend this series! 5*

Grrrrr!
Author: Rob Biddulph
This book has it all- incredible pictures, amazing rhymes and an interesting story line. My daughter loved it all, particularly Fred and his GRRRRR and the message about friendships- although I felt it a little muddled in places as a reader. Nevertheless, we've come back to it a few times now as my eldest loves shouting the GRRRR! Rob Biddulph is quickly becoming a favourite in our house.
