One of my favorite Halloween stories is "Littlebat's Halloween Story" by Gideon Kendall.(correction: Gideon Kendall illustrated. Diane Mayr is the author)
"Littlebat lives in the library attic. He loves listening to the librarian tell stories, but is frustrated because he can't see the pictures. Littlebat can't think of a good way to get close to the book without being noticed, until one special night..."
I so wanted Littlebat to get to see the pictures in the books! You'll root for him too.:-)
