  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
