EDMOND — ‘CALENDAR MYSTERIES: OCTOBER OGRE’

BY RON ROY

In “Calendar Mysteries: October Ogre,” there’s a haunted house in Green Lawn! It’s Halloween, and the Shangri-la Hotel has been transformed into a haunted house, complete with an ogre out front.

Bradley, Brian, Nate and Lucy are ready for some scary fun, but then they notice that none of the kids who have gone into the hotel have come back out.

What’s happening to them? Ghosts and witches and ogres aren’t real…right?

Calendar Mysteries are geared toward younger readers just broaching chapter books. They feature the younger siblings and cousin of the main characters in Ron Roy’s popular A to Z Mysteries series.

Ages 6-9.

‘WHERE’S BOO?’

BY SALINA YOON

Hide-and-seek has never been more exciting! Salina Yoon’s newest effort, “Where’s Boo?” is an interactive board book that will excite the youngest readers with its playful Halloween twist.

“Where’s Boo?” is the perfect book to introduce the youngest trick-or-treaters to Halloween. Very young readers will love searching for Boo the black cat among familiar Halloween characters and objects like jack-o-lanterns and witch’s broomsticks — and finding something unexpected instead.

Each page offers a hint of Boo, but it isn’t until the last page that readers will find him. And when they do, they are greeted with a happy “Trick-or-treat!” and they will want to start all over again!

“Where’s Boo?” encourages readers to hone their cognitive skills and use their memory as they search for the stealthy cat. Babies will enjoy touching Boo’s fuzzy face on the cover, and rubbing his fuzzy tail as they turn the pages. This attention-grabbing book is educational and entertaining — perfect for lap time, sharing and read-alouds.

Ages 0-3.
