Books For Kids To Read In October

As the days get shorter and the air cooler, I start looking for books about ghosts, ghouls, witches, demons, vampires, and disturbing vegetables. Yes, you read that right -- disturbing vegetables. Because even the littlest kids like goosebumps every once in a while, my recommendations for this month include books that are a little bit creepy, scary or just plain weird. These books, for everyone from preschoolers to teenagers, provide a full set of aliens, monsters and bright green pants with nobody inside them. Be brave!
