Bela and Morgan Crash a Party (or, Lisa Brown's Terrific New Halloween Tale)

Lisa Brown's made some delicious books in the past (including the spot-on How to Be, and the wickedly clever "Baby, Make..."/"Baby, Do..." books for adults from McSweeney's, and the excellent young adult novel Picture the Dead), but at the moment, we're enthralled with Vampire Boy's Good Night, successfully road-testing it with kids as young as just-almost-three. It's a big, big hit all around. And it's high time to have a Halloween book that's, well, different, unordinary, smart!

There's a superb website to visit, and a fun book trailer to watch. Hope you enjoy book, site, and trailer as much as we have!

Oh, yes -- we're having a Halloween party with Lisa and Vampire Boy on Saturday, October 23. Stay tuned for the time, but mark your calendar now. Costumes requested, story, photos, and goodies provided!
