Well, Halloween is in a week but it wouldn't be fun to list these books on that day for the holiday will almost be over, so here are some ghastly and semi-ghastly books for Halloween, especially two Cinderella books. If you are interested in titles for the under age five set, I also have my Halloween Storytime page that has some of my all time favorite titles, including Skeleton Hiccups and In a Dark, Dark Wood: An Old Tale With a New Twist.
Now for the Cinderellas:
Meet Cinderella Skeleton, as sweetly foul as only a ghoul can be. Poor Cinderella has no one to help her hang the cobwebs and arrange dead flowers--certainly not her evil stepsisters. But the Halloween Ball is just around the corner. . . . Will Cinderella find happiness at last?
Cinderhazel is a blonde witch who loves dirt more than anything else. When her stepsisters and stepmother fly off to attend the annual Halloween witches' ball, where the elusive Prince Alarming will make an appearance, they leave Cinderhazel behind. All her attempted spells turn to dust - until her witchy fairy godmother appears and sends Cinderhazel off to meet the equally messy prince. Could this be the beginning of filthily ever after?
And a few more not so fairy tale related, but nursery rhyme reminiscent:
