Get ready to celebrate Halloween with this spooktacular beginning reader chapter book:

Henry Hooper is a little nervous about going to his friend Artie Doomsday's house on top of Hallows Hill.  Everybody calls the hill HAUNTED Hill, and when Henry meets Artie's sister Wanda and Granny Doomsday, he starts to wonder if the Doomsday household is haunted, too.  Especially when Granny starts cooking up a big pot of bat bones and spider stew!  Is this some kind of crazy Halloween prank, or is the Doomsday family for real?
Michelle Poploff is the author of two chapter books, Splash-a-Roo and Snowflakes and Tea Party for Two.  

Bill Basso has illustrated many children's books, including the Dragon Slayers' Academy series and Wolfman Sam.

"Let's have a Halloween riddle-go-round," said Artie.  "Everyone takes a turn telling a riddle.  You're our guest, Henry.  Go ahead."

Henry looked at the jack-o'-lantern.  A candle glowed inside.

"What's orange and falls off walls?"

The Doomsdays didn't know.

"Hic, Humpty Pumpkin," said Henry.

"I'm next," said Wanda.  "Where does a witch buy stamps?"

"At the ghost office," said Artie and Henry.

"No fair," said Wanda.

"My turn," said Artie.  "Why was the baby monster sad?"

When no one answered, he said, "Because he missed his mummy."

"Hic, not bad," said Henry.

He smiled and tried to relax.

That's when the lights went out.
