Waiting on Wednesday: Throw Back to An Old Halloween Read

This isn't really a waiting on Wednesday, considering this book as been around for YEARS! Did you ever get excited about the take home Scholastic fair book orders as a kid? I LOVED them! I always begged my mom to please let me get a book with each order than came home. One of those book happened to be in a fall order, which was this particular book. I don't know what it was about this book, but I really, really wanted to read it. Luckily my Mom said yes, and it arrived just in time for Halloween. I read it as soon as I got it and LOVED it! As the other books in this series were released I also snatch them up and read them as quickly as I could. I'll most likely date myself when I say this, but I remember reading this book in like 4th grade, or maybe it was 5th. Either way, this is a book I read a long time ago and loved.

With Halloween being around the corner, I've been on the hunt for some books with a little bit of a Halloween theme to read. What's more fitting than having a story about a vampire bunny? Not only that, my son is getting to the age were he can easily sit down and read a book like this. While I get all excited to introduce him to some of the latest releases, I also love sharing with him books I loved when I was his age. This is one I'm looking to snatch up for him.

What was one of your favorite books to read as a kid. Or if you aren't as old as me, what's one of your favorite Halloween reads?


  1. I just finished reading this and it was wonderful for Halloween. My cover was different, I think I like yours better. It highlights Harold and Chester more.

  2. I loved the bookfair as a kid. It was so exciting to bring money to school and search for new books to buy. Loved it. I loved so many books as a kid, but in terms of a Halloween-type read, maybe R.L. Stine Fear Street ("The Babysitter", etc :) Loved those!
