It’s that time of year again: Halloween! Which means it’s also the Neil Gaiman created holiday All Hallow’s Read, in which instead of (or in addition to) giving strange children non-strange candy you can also gift them with the joy of reading. Or more specifically, books.
Children are inevitably creepy – especially children who talk about their dead ghost friends – which is why for this year’s All Hallow’s Read (not to be confused with the only other year we did this) our suggestions are centered around children who have a preternatural ability to see dead people. Or just dead things.
If you have no desire to go out this Halloween and would much rather stay inside cuddled up with a spooky book and some warm cider while avoiding the ghosts, ghouls and Queen Elsas wandering the streets, you may want to check out these terrifying offerings.
