How about you? What are your favorite Halloween picture books? Thanks for sharing!
With the release of my latest picture book, The Boo Crew Needs You!, I got to visit a lot of bookstores and look at their beautiful Halloween book displays! Halloween is always such a fun visual subject, and illustrators are really doing gorgeous work on these books. I’ve put together a list of books that caught my eye, for their sweet/clever texts and their charming/gorgeous illustrations! I hope you enjoy the list and reading some of these wonderful Halloween books.
The Boo Crew Needs You by Vicky Fang, illustrated by Saoirse Lou
This is my interactive, rhyming Halloween book! I wanted to write a book where the characters have to work as a team, and why not make the reader a part of that team too? In this book, the reader must tap, twist, shake the book, and more to help Luna, Bones, and Fang―a ghost, skeleton, and vampire team! [picture book, ages 3 and up]

Vlad the Fabulous Vampire by Flavia Z. Drago
Following Gustavo the Shy Ghost and Leila the Perfect Witch, meet Vlad the Fabulous Vampire! This is such a clever story about a vampire who tries to hide his true colors. Flavia’s illustrations are gorgeous and adorable as always, with a heart-warming story about self-confidence. [picture book, ages 3 and up]
Meowl-O-Ween by Diane Muldrow, illustrated by Tiffany Chen
This is a sweet and fun Halloween book for cat-loving kids! This charming, rhyming story is filled with cats and an encouraging message about being brave when you are scared. [picture book, ages 3 and up]
