13 Ghosts of Halloween by Storms and Muller

I've loved Patricia Storms's blog for ages now, and have come to admire her bookish enthusiasm, her humour and intelligence-- not to mention her artistic talent. (Her bookslut is one of my favourite images ever). And so last week I was quite excited to purchase 13 Ghosts of Halloween by Robin Muller, which Patricia has so beautifully illustrated. A singable tale of a group of friends exploring a haunted house, the book was delightful. Pictoral highlights were the twelve werewolves howling, the redhaired girl with glasses, and cool effect created on the thirteenth stroke of midnight. I loved it. This book is adorable, and I am so pleased it has joined my children's library, to be pulled out in October for many years to come.
