Mousekin's Golden House and Go Away Big Green Monster - Fright Month

Both of the books for today are for little ones, so although they are not frightening, they are perfect for the Halloween season. The first one is out of print, so I am sharing a second book that is readily available.

Mousekin's Golden House by Edna Miller is a darling Autumn story about a mouse who encounters a Jack-O-Lantern shortly after Halloween and decides it is the perfect house for the winter. Edna Miller's illustrations are absolutely charming. This book was published in 1964 and can be found for a large sum of money on Amazon. (over $40)

Go Away, Big Green Monster by Ed Emberley is a darling book. As you read and turn each page, you build a monster with Emberley's fun artwork. Continue reading, and the words and turning the pages make the monster go away. Matt loved this book when he was little. It is fun to read and not at all scary. The cost for this one is under $10.
