October's Notes from the Horn BoooOOOOoook

The October issue of Notes from the Horn Book is here! This month (just in time for El Día de los Muertos!) we've got 5Q for Duncan Tonatiuh on Funny Bones, plus (just in time for Halloween):

  • picture book tricks and treats

  • books on mixed-up magic for intermediate readers

  • creepy middle-grade fantasy

  • YA horror short stories, novels, and a book that's a bit of both
