Dress up early in those Halloween costumes to visit Novel Bay Booksellers, 44 N. 3rd Ave. in Sturgeon Bay, on Oct. 23, 10 am – 1 pm, to meet the illustrator Bonnie Leick. She’ll be signing copies of It’s Halloween, Little Monster, which she illustrated and Helen Ketteman wrote.
Little Monster is going trick-or-treating for the first time, and it’s a spooky night, with witches, vampires, zombies and other scary things all around. As he makes his way around the neighborhood, Papa helps to guide him through his fears until they reach the last house. It’s the spookiest of all, and there might be a surprise waiting for them.
The illustrations are adorable, full-page watercolors that pair with the gentle, soothing cadence of Ketteman’s writing. It’s Halloween, Little Monster is the third in a series.
