Welcome to the Book Review Pages.

October Splash Image

Welcome again to the book reviews here at

Last year I described one of my favorite October books, The Halloween Tree by Ray Bradbury. Now I'd like to tell you about another. A few years ago Roger Zelazny wrote a wonderful book called A Night in the Lonesome October. It is written in day-by-day entries, thirty-one chapters in all, and in October at our house we read each day aloud, taking turns. We even have good-natured disagreements about who gets to read the best chapters. For younger readers this month I found some other slightly spooky books: Hoodwinked by Arthur Howard and The Monsters of Morley Manor by Bruce Coville. And incidentally, the moon is full on November 1 this year -- NOT on Halloween. Enjoy
