Halloween author, Donna Davies has created an exciting Halloween mystery that will have your kids sitting on the edge of theirs seats.

Meet an amazing cast of Halloween monsters from witches to zombies as they go on an adventure to help their Queen and save Halloween.

* Calliope, the Halloween Queen kicks off the Halloween Bash every year with a scream.  But this year, someone has stolen her scream. Told in rhyme, we follow the black widow Mina as she searches for clues to who stole the Queen's scream.  Then we go on an adventure as she helps to gather the special ingredients needed for Witchy Wanda's special potion to get the Queen her scream back.  After reading this book I discovered that the author is a local Hudson Valley resident and owns/runs the publishing company.  Overall, this was a cute Halloween read.

* This book was borrowed from the library.

Family Rating: 1 thumb up.
