Picture book monsters and witches for Halloween

It’s almost Halloween and we’ve rounded up some of our favourite picture books about witches and monsters. The monsters aren’t at all scary so all the stories are suitable for very little readers.

Do you have any scary, monsterly, witchy, ghostly suggestions that you can add to our list?

Winnie's Amazing Pumpkin - Story SnugWinnie the Witch - Story SnugWinnie the Witch is our favourite witch and Winnie’s Amazing Pumpkin is a story that is particularly relevant to Halloween. After hollowing out her pumpkin Winnie turns the skin into an original mode of transport.





When Meg, Mog and Owl have supper they aren’t prepared for the rather large dinosaurs that hatch out of Meg’s Eggs! Can they find a solution to the problem before the dinosaurs get too hungry!

A monsterly night out! Vampires, monsters, witches and slime cake are all on the menu in Tamara Small and the Monsters’ Ball.

Icky Sticky Monster is a particularly revolting pop up monster who enjoys eating and drinking disgusting concoctions. It’s not easy to keep him away from the loo!

Dad invents The Monster Machine but what happens when the monsters get bored of watching television and try to build their own?!

A pink fluffy monster – how dreadful! Yuck! That’s not a Monster isn’t your usual scary monster but being cute and pink can have its benefits!

  1. Lovely selection! Monster story books are always popular.

    I’ve popped over from My Best Post of the Week! And have included my own Autumn Book Round Up. Will look out for you on twitter.

  2. You have already listed our favorite monster book – Yuck, That’s Not A Monster!

    Will make sure to look into the other ones. We love Winnie the Witch around here but have not read the two you listed. Thank you for bringing them to my attention!

  3. we love reading in this house, although I have bypassed Halloween and gone straight for chritstmas books oh dear! some of those monster books look really cute. Thanks for joining in with #sundayroundup

  4. Oh, I’ve not really heard of any of these books. But I must check them out for Little Miss H next year. When I was little, I used to love the “Worst Witch” books by Jill Murphy. And last year, I bought the set for my 9 year old niece. They were a great success. Hugs Mrs H xxxx
