Tomorrow's edition of Reading Corner is all about spooky books for Halloween—from a thought provoking picture book from Jon J Muth to the latest teen novel by Rick Yancey.

It was a lot of fun to put this issue together because Halloween was always my favorite holiday during childhood. Besides the obscene amount of candy and the dressing up, I also loved October 31 for the books.

I haven't lived at home for years, but I would bet my mom still puts out a basket filled with tattered copies of The Berenstain Bears Trick or Treat, The Soup Bone, Little Witch and various craft books with ideas like, "peeled grapes in a bowl feel just like eyeballs!"

What are your favorite kids books for Halloween?

Sign up for Reading Corner for chilling suggestions (okay, some of them are just fun!). As usual, tomorrow's issue includes a super giveaway.
