Halloween book competition

There’s less than a week to go until Halloween. Are you feeling spooky yet?

To get her in the mood, Belle has been reading some scary Halloween stories this week from Miles Kelly. They are aimed at 6-9 year olds, beautifully illustrated and each book includes four or five individual stories. They include a mixture of classic stories with a creepy twist, plus lots of lesser known tales that have been imaginatively retold for children.

"Halloween stories"

To win your own set of three books, which includes The Wicked Witch of the West, Jack the Giant Killer and The Little Mermaid, simply leave a comment on this post, telling me what your favourite book was as a child.

A winner will be chosen on 31st October.

P.S. Don’t forget to enter my competition to win a pair of Cheekyshoes too!

    My favourite books were the Malory Towers series by Enid Blyton. I was desperate to go to boarding school as a result.

    It’s called Lustige Geschichten and is by a Russian author called Vladimir Sutejew. I loved it so much that my parents painted my favourite characters onto my bedroom walls and I filled them in with red crayon – oops ;)
