Favorite Fall Books!
I am so excited to show you guys my favorite Fall and Halloween books! Best thing about these is that you can find all of them on amazon! I picked out books with beautiful illustrations, they are perfect to display on our bookshelves! I would suggest purchasing these with time as they tend to sell out as fall approaches! I provided all the direct links for you in the images! "No such thing" is discontinued and marked up for a crazy price, HOWEVER I was able to snag it in the Spanish version for an amazing price, so if you speak Spanish grab it! I provide the link for it below! Would love any more recommendations to add to this list! If you have any comment below!

Gustavo is good at doing all sorts of ghostly things: walking through walls, making objects fly, and glowing in the dark. And he loves almost nothing more than playing beautiful music on his violin. But Gustavo is shy, and some things are harder for him to do, like getting in a line to buy eye scream or making friends with other monsters. Whenever he tries getting close to them, he realizes they just can’t see him. Now that the Day of the Dead is fast approaching, what can he do to make them notice him and to share with them something he loves? With fancifully detailed artwork and visual humor, Drago’s vivid illustrations tell a sweet and gently offbeat story of loneliness, bravery, and friendship that is sure to be a treat for little ghouls and goblins everywhere.

But things don't go as planned when it turns out a KID comes with this old lady. Chester spots Simon immediately and peppers him with questions.
