Boo!

October’s Notes from the Horn Book is all Halloween, all the time. Mwa-ha-ha-ha! In this issue, I ask vampire queen Holly Black five questions about her new YA novel, The Coldest Girl in Coldtown. Other treats in store for you:

• more YA with dark, well-developed characters
• silly Halloween picture books
• primary books great for kid participation
• spooky, but not gory, stories for middle graders
