Halloween Themed Story Books For Kids

Halloween Themed Story Books For Kids

We all love reading in our family and my boys love nothing more than a new book. With Halloween almost here I thought I would share a Halloween round-up of storybooks for kids. So here are our top picks from Penguin Random House.


Ten Minutes To Bedtime Little Monster Age 2 yrs+

This is perfect to read to little ones at bedtime. Belch the monster is supposed to be all snuggled up and ready to go to sleep but it seems there are far too many distractions for that business! From what is a lively start, the ten-minute countdown takes you through a journey that eventually finishes with a calming ending helping little ones to gentle enter the land of nod.

Peppa Pig – Pumpkin Competition Age 1 yr+

My youngest is really fond of Peppa Pig as are most little ones! Playgroup is holding a Halloween pumpkin competition and Grandpa pig has grown a massive pumpkin just for Peppa. The trouble is that they can’t fit it into the car because it is so huge! Will they get the pumpkin to the competition in time?


Meg and Mog 40th Anniversary Edition Age 3 yrs +

Meg and Mog is a well-loved classic about a witch (Meg) and her cat (Mog). This celebratory edition is to mark the 40th anniversary of the original. Meg the witch lives with Mog and her owl. They set off to attend a Halloween party but unfortunately, a spell didn’t go to plan! I love how colourful this book is and the large clear fonts make it easy for children to read throughout the book. The illustrations are bold and bright and tell the story by themselves allowing little ones who can’t read to follow the story.

First Prize For The Worst Witch In The World Age 7 yrs+

Mildred Hubble is a student at Miss Cackle’s Academy for witches. She may be the worst witch ever but she makes the best friend ever. This year she is planning on the schools highest honour of ‘head girl’. All she has to do now is prove to everyone that she can stay out of trouble! However, the opposition is tough and Ethel Hallow will do anything to stop her claiming the title.

    Lovely to see a mix of old and new ones. My children still love to read but more online these days on the whole and I hate that. #MMBC

    Seasonal books are brilliant. My lot are a bit beyond these books, but I used to have a basket filled with season themed books. I kind of miss it, but they are busy reading older books now. #MMBC
