All Hallow’s Read!
Give a book for Halloween!
Spooky elements: Sewing. Buttons and sewing. I don’t want to give too much away, but it gives me the heebie-jeebies. Also a thing that wants to take you from your parents and keep you forever, but that is nothing compared to the buttons.
Good for: This book is just excellent. I’d recommend it to anybody. While very spooky, the book is still good for the younger crowd—clever Coraline always keeps her head, and that makes it much easier to be brave on her behalf.
