October is here which means that Halloween is around the corner. And just in time for the holiday, Gayle Raimbault (my mother!) has published a children's novella titled, The Halloween Wish. If you've been searching for a cute book for your kids to add to their e-readers that is full of adventure, Halloween magick, and a touch of spookiness; then look no more!
The Halloween Wish takes place in Gayle's fictional town of Springview—located somewhere in the Midwest. It's an ordinary town except for one thing: Springview hides a secret! It has something to do with an off-beaten trail that runs through a cornfield and leads to an old farmhouse. And there are many legends surrounding this farmhouse. Why, some people even claim that a witch lives there!
Three children decide to set off on Halloween night to test the legends of this farmhouse. Wouldn't you like to join them? And they learn a valuable lesson along the way about making wishes.
The Halloween Wish is full of hand-drawn illustrations by Gayle and her granddaughter (my niece), Hannah. There are poems and songs to accompany the brilliant plot of this story. Need I come out and say that this book is awesome? I give it five stars! Your kids will love reading it, so do get a copy. But why should only children read it? Adults will love this adventurous and spooky tale as well.
