Mailbox Monday #242

Mailbox Monday (click the icon to check out the new blog) has gone on tour since Marcia at To Be Continued, formerly The Printed Page passed the torch.  September’s host is Book Dragon’s Lair.

The meme allows bloggers to share what books they receive in the mail or through other means over the past week.

Just be warned that these posts can increase your TBR piles and wish lists.

Here’s what I received:

1.  Halloween Sleepwalker by Thomas Freese and Fran Riddell for review.

Are ghosts, witches, and scary creatures real? Around the fireside, Shelby Sherman Sanford’s family is talking about their Halloween fears. Mother, father, and older sister confess their frights, but Shelby says he is not afraid of anything he wants to go out for a walk! Later that night, when the clock strikes twelve, it seems Shelby gets his chance to prove himself, as he finds himself outside in the neighbor’s corn field. A young witch welcomes him with an enchanted apple and one bite gives him the second sight of ghosts and monsters. A ride on the witch’s broom carries Shelby over the graveyard, past the church, and crashing into a tree to begin his adventure. But is it real or a dream?

What did you receive?

  10. Hi Serena,

    What a lovely book, I haven’t been able to find a site which shows the inside pages, but I am hoping that there are some additional illustrations of equal quality to the cover.

    The author sounds like such an interesting character also, who obviously enjoys working with youngsters, with his story-telling and music.

    A great family choice book and I am glad you enjoyed it, thanks for sharing with us.


  11. That looks adorable!
