A spooktacularly spooky Halloween book for children by Barry Timms with stunningly-detailed illustrations from rising picture book star, Laura Borio.
Books are magic! Bookshops are spectacular! Don’t believe us? Join Henry as he helps Griselda Snook on the opening day of her spooky bookshop! From hunting down runaway jack-o’-lanterns to banishing dragons, Henry loves his day spent in Griselda’s bookshop, and he especially likes helping booklovers to find their next read. But can Henry find the perfect book for him?
With an eyecatching, head-turning orange fluoro pantone ink throughout, this gorgeous book is a celebration of the magic of books and bookshops. Just like Funnybones by Janet and Allan Ahlberg, Gustavo the Shy Ghost by Flavia Z. Drago and The Incredible Book Eating Boy by Oliver Jeffers, Griselda Snook’s Spectacular Books is the ideal gift for booklovers and kids that love spooky books.
